If you’re a homeschool parent-teacher or kindergarten teacher you know how difficult the task of reading can be for a child. Letter sounds, letter recognition, blends, vowels (long and short), digraphs, sight words, CVC words, soft c— it’s a lot, even for me to wrap my head around. And I know how to read! This fun Digraphs SH, TH, CH Printable Pack includes 3 posters and a sorting activity to practice with.

Let’s face it, teaching a small human to read is hard work but once children have a basic understanding of letters and phonics, they should be able to gradually blend letter sounds and incorporate sight words. This will eventually lead to reading sentences and short stories.
Due to COVID, my husband and I decided to keep our 5-year-old home from school this year so I knew that teaching him to read was a task I was going to have to take on. After a lot of research, I decided that I was going to approach it phonetically- first by teaching sight words then progressing into letter blending.
The alphabet and letter sounds are a piece of cake, but the concept of putting all the sounds together to make a word can be very difficult for some children. I’ve found that practicing these concepts comes easier with hands-on activities that use a lot of colors, cutting, gluing, and repetition. Sometimes we have good days, and some days I just want to pull my hair out! Even on the good days, I have to remind myself to relax, breathe, and tell myself that eventually, he will get it.
