Can you think of a word that has “ph” in it? Or how about a word that has “oa”? Challenge your brain and your friends to a friendly word and spelling competition with the virtual digraph cards.
Our digraph cards are a virtual manipulative that helps make learning to read and spell fun and engaging. To use them, simply drag and drop a card onto the playing area. Then, double click it to flip it over. Drag as many cards onto the area as you’d like! In total, there are 80 cards that show 20 digraphs which are each repeated 4 times. Write letters or draw pictures using the pencil tool. Erase mistakes using the eraser tool. Clear the board with the trash can tool.
Digraphs are sounds made by a combination of two letters. Working on digraphs can help students become confident readers.
Wondering how to use the digraph cards? Make learning words fun with these challenging digraph card games:
- Word lists. Flip one card over. Challenge students to make a list of as many words as they can using that digraph. Whoever writes the most words wins! Play individually or on teams.
- Challenge students to combine two of the digraph cards to create a word. For example, “sheep,” or “throat.”
- Write one word using a digraph. Then, ask students to read the word and draw a picture of it using the pencil tool.
- Flip over many digraph cards. Challenge students to find digraphs that make the same sound. For example, “ee” and “ea.”
