Looking for a game to help your child learn the sounds of beginning and ending digraphs? Today I’m sharing five of them!
About a month ago I shared a giant set of Roll a Short Vowel games. Today I’m sharing five Roll a Digraph games!
How to play
1. Grab a playing piece for each player and a die. Print the board you’d like to use.
2. Put all playing pieces on Start, and take turns rolling the die.
3. When you roll the die, check the top of the board to see what picture to move to. For example, in the above game, if you roll a five, you would move to the closest picture whose names starts with ph.
4. Keep taking turns until one person lands on the final space.
Some of the pictures were hard for my Four. You’ll find a key with the picture names in the download, but it might be helpful to begin the game by naming all the pictures on the board. Your child might need some reminders, but it will keep those tricky pictures from slowing down the game.
These games are a win for us because they’re quick and effective. I love that I can just print the board, and my son loves that we’re done with a single game in 5-10 minutes. That makes these perfect for a quick review at home or a center activity in the classroom.
What you’ll get in the download
- Game for ch, sh
- Game for ch, sh, th
- Game for ch, sh, th, wh, ph (pictured above)
- Game for wr, wh, kn
- Game for ending digraphs: sh, ch, th, ck
