Kindergarten students love working on these words. Sometimes I put the words in the pocket chart and give them the picture cards. Then they match the pictures to the words.

TIP:  Tape the letter cards that form a digraph together to be used as a unit (phonogram), e.g.,  s and h are taped together to make sh which is use in the word fish. Do not tape blends together, e.g., do not tape t and r together for blend tr as in the word tree.
