Digraph Crafts

Who says a week of review has to be boring?
"Not I", said the teacher.
Each day last week we picked a different digraph to review and got a little crafty with it!
We started off each day with a review of digraph sounds on BrainPOP.
{If you don't have a subscription I HIGHLY recommend it!!}
I had them listen for digraph words. We took those words and others they came up with and wrote them down in a brainstorming session on our chart.
Each day I had the students pick one word from our chart and use it for our craft.
Day 1: CH
We took our words from "Our ch words" anchor chart and made a CHocolate CHip cookie! 
Day 2: SH
We took our words from "Our sh words" anchor chart and made a fiSH bowl!
Day 3: TH
We took our words from "Our th words" anchor chart and made a paTHway of words!
Day 4: WH
We took our words from "Our wh words" anchor chart and made a WHale!
We had so much fun and the kiddos looked forward trying to figure out what digraph each poster was for!  Perfect way for THem to SHow WHatCHa know!

  3. I love the whale craft! Would you be able to email me the template? I would love to do this with my first graders.

    1. There really isn't a template because I make the charts out of butcher/chart paper, so sorry.
