Phonics is a subject that cannot be repeated enough in the early grades. Phonics forms the basis of figuring out how words are put together and why they are formed in the way they are.
I have a variety of phonics activities for my young readers – hands-on activities, traditional worksheets, our spelling tiles, and more. When I have a beginning reader, I have most of the resources accessible so I can just pull them when the need arises.

Beginning and Ending Digraph Writing Practice Worksheets
If you’re not familiar with blends versus digraphs, here is a quickie explanation:
Definition of a blend: A combination of two or more letters in which each letter retains its own sound. As I tell my children, “You can still hear the sound of each letter if you say it slowly.”
This is different from a digraph, which is also called a consonant team.
Definition of a digraph: A combination of two or more letters in which a new phonics sound is created. I also tell my children, “You cannot hear each letter make its own sound. The two or more letters make a brand new sound.” An example of this is s and h are said /sh/. Or c and h are said /ch/.
This set of Beginning and Ending Digraph Writing Practice Worksheets includes 22 different printable worksheets, each focusing on a particular digraph.
Note that ph- and -ng include only 1 page each.
Each page in this packet features 4 different pictures that begin with the featured digraph.
For example, the digraph sh- shows pictures of a sheep, shed, shell, and girl “shut”ting the door.
Your child can read and then trace the word on the first line, and practice writing the word independently on the second line.
Beginning digraphs include: th-, sh-, ch-, ph-, wh-, kn- wr-
Ending digraphs include: -ch, -sh, -th, -ck, -ng
