Digraphs work together to make unique sounds. Beginning (and struggling) readers typically read these letter combinations with two distinct sounds. For example, sh is frequently read as /s/,/h/ rather than /sh/.

Consonant Digraphs are taught early learning education. They come after children have learned short vowel sounds, but before they learn long vowel VCE (vowel, consonant, E) words. Whether student’s should be taught digraphs first varies by teacher with the two being interchangeable.

At Charge Mommy Books, we focus on teaching letter blends first, followed by digraphs. Mastering consonant blends first enables a child to read a broader range of words including digraphs, which enables them to get more practice with digraphs.
