Digraph Tips

There are many different digraph sounds which can take a while to recognize. There are many challenges when learning digraphs, such as;

  • Inability to recognise the letter combinations
  • Pronouncing the sounds
  • Blending the word with digraphs

Digraphs can be taught quite easily if the right words are chosen. Focus on words that are no more than 5 letters long, with the digraph clearly visible for the student to see.

Here are my top tips when teaching digraphs:

  • Use words with pictures to introduce the sounds. The student may be familiar with the vocabulary, giving them a better understanding of the concept. For example, /sh/ in fish. They know the sound already!
  • Get them to underline or colour in the digraph to show their ability to recognise the letter combinations.
  • Get students to read passages containing digraph words to build up their awareness.
  • Do not use words with a set structure. Mix it up. Have a mixture of vocabulary that has the sound at the start, middle, and end.
