Can you read trigraphs? You can master the next level of reading with the trigraph tiles! You’ll learn to read and write many new words.
To use the trigraph tiles, simply click, drag, and drop one of the three trigraphs onto the grid. Then, write a word with it using the rest of the letters in the alphabet. Write, draw, and erase on the grid using the pencil and eraser tools. Clear the grid using the trash can tool. You can also remove letters and trigraphs by clicking, dragging, and dropping them off the grid.
The trigraph tiles help young students improve their reading skills. Trigraphs are sounds written with three letters. “Dodge,” “itch,” and “night” are three examples of words with trigraphs. Use the trigraph tiles for learning with these fun activities:
- Ask students to write as many words with the trigraphs as possible. You could even make it a friendly competition between two small groups!
- Challenge students to write a sentence using at least one word spelled with a trigraph.
- Write out words using trigraph tiles and have students read them.
- Use the pencil tool or alphabet tiles to spell words incorrectly. Then, have students spell them correctly using the trigraphs. For example “cach” should be “catch.”
