Build a Bear Digraph Match

This is a great hands-on way for your kids to practice digraph recognition skills!

This set includes beginning (ch-, sh-, wh-, th-, ph-, kn- ,wr-) and ending (-ch, -sh, -ck, -th, -ng) digraphs.

To prepare, print the bears and simply cut out the pieces. If you plan to use this activity year after year, I recommend laminating for extra durability.

To play, have kids choose a picture and identify the word in the picture. They will build a bear by matching the pictures with the correct digraph sound. Kids can continue to choose and match their picture cards to correct digraph bears.

Use this activity as a literacy center activity, morning word work practice or just a fun digraph matching game.

  1. Have you got similar activity but with initial sounds? Diagraphs are really nice but I am thinking about all Set 1 sounds (m, a, d, t, etc).



    1. Hi! No, currently I don’t have Build a Bear activity with initial sounds. I’ll think about adding it!
      Best regards, Sandra
