Phonics words list for sh ch th sound for kindergarten and first grade

Phonics words list is a great tool to improve reading and spelling. These phonics word lists show our little readers that words are often related by a pattern, a spelling pattern. Understanding this pattern makes them better at reading and spelling.

We have to make our little readers understand that sounds can be represented by multiple spelling patterns. Teaching children the spelling patterns for different sounds is necessary to encode or decode a word.

In this post, we shall be covering digraphs.

What are digraphs?

A digraph is two letters that make just one sound.

A consonant digraph is two adjacent consonants that produce one sound.

s and h are two consonants which come together to form a new sound, the /sh/ sound.

I usually tell children that when ‘s’ and ‘h’ come together, they form a new sound, /sh/.

The first word list of this pack is the digraph sh words list.
