I know that my girls have enjoyed several of the hands-on learning printables over the years. Each of them learns a different way. I have enjoyed the challenge that those learning types have created for me.
Digraphs can be hard but fun too. One of our favorite digraphs is “sh” for shell when we have done beach activities.
I thought it would be work to work on digraphs and sorting shells for our final beach printable. It is fun and hands-on that some kids just need.
This post is part of the 5 Days of Beach Printables.
One of our favorite things about the beach is finding shells and putting them in pails. We always look forward to this. I thought for the final beach week printable this would be a fun one to do. You can sort the shells to the correct bucket.
There are four different buckets for kids to sort the shells to they have: ch-, sh-, th- and wh- on them. They are the beginning digraphs that we are working on. These are some that my girls have worked on in kindergarten and first grade.
There are 12 different shells with pictures to sort to the buckets. Each of them has a picture of that matches up to the bucket. There are three shells for each bucket.
As she sorted the shells she said the name and the sound that it makes. She then matched up the shells to the pails.
One final activity you could do is write out the digraph words on paper. We use the beach writing paper for this.
What you will find in these printables:
- Pails with the Digraphs: ch, sh, th and wh
- Shells with images for shorting
- 3 pages of printables
