What is a Digraph?

A digraph is just a fancy name for two letters that make one new sound. The ones you’ll see most often are sh, th, wh, and of course, ch, which is what we’re talking about today.

Why are Digraphs important?

Digraphs are important building blocks for early literacy! But there’s no need to overcomplicate things.

Digraphs build on other important early literacy concepts like learning closed syllables and cvc words, so that students can begin reading longer, more complex words.

It’s important to teach the ch digraph while touching on the sh digraph, so that children can learn to differentiate the letters and distinguish the sounds. These worksheets include practice exercises to assist with that concept.
