Digraphs (e.g. sh-ch-th) are a combination of two or more letters that make a single sound.Teaching digraphs is a great tool for helping students read fluently without wasting time at recognizing the letter combination.

My students' first foreign language is French so I always have a hard time especially teaching them the difference between CH and SH.
Every time we encounter a word including CH or SH I direct their attention to the difference between French and English.
This is why I immediately went down to creating Digraph Wheels as soon as I stumbled upon the flashcards posted at

After the visual and oral introduction of the phonics you can give the students the worksheets below for a written practice and consolidation.
