Can you find the ‘tch’ graphemes in these sentences? Draw a line under them then write your own sentences with these words.
Can you find the 'ph' digraphs in this wordsearch?
There are different ways of writing the sound /or/. Ask a grown-up to cut out the words at the bottom of the page and read them to you without you seeing the spelling. See if you know which grapheme each one uses to represent the /or/sound and write it on the notebooks .
Can you draw a line between the word and the corresponding picture. Remember that the ‘ai’ grapheme also makes the /ai/ sound, and so does the split vowel digraph a_e. When you have matched up all the pictures to the words cut them all up into individual words and pictures and mix them up. See if you can match each word to its picture now that you have lots more options.
Read the following words without an ‘e’, then add an ‘e’ to them and see how it changes the words. Then read these sentences and underline the words that have split vowel digraphs. Now can you write your own sentences including split vowel digraph words?
Can you fill in the missing words in the crossword and sentences? Every answer will be a word that is a split vowel digraph.
Can you read these sentences? When you get to a polysyllabic / long word, cover up the second half of the word. Read the first syllable and then uncover the rest of the word to read it.
