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.
This printable PDF includes 6 pages of 12 x 5 bear pieces.
TO PREP: Print out the bear pieces. Print them on cardstock or laminate for extra durability. Cut them out.
TO PLAY: Let your kids match arms and legs with pictures to the digraph sound on the bear. Have fun!
