What are consonant digraphs?

Consonants are all letters in the alphabet apart from the vowels a, e, i, o, and u.

b c d f g h j k l m n p q r s t v w x y z are consonants

A digraph is two letters that make just one sound.

A consonant digraph is two adjacent consonants that produce one speech sound. They are not blends.

I have created a zero prep resource for reading digraph sentences for sounds sh, ch, th, wh and ph. This resource will help with reading fluency.
