Use consonant digraphs to introduce learners to word patterns and high frequency words. They observe a chart with the digraphs /sh/, /ch/, /th/, and /wh/.

Scaffolding is key here; once kids have watched and listened, they practice in a guided setting. The chart and words are provided for printing, but consider projecting them for demonstration.
