In this lesson, students will revisit the consonant digraphs sh, th, ch, wh, and ph. They will do a series of activities to practice various words that contain these digraphs.

Students will think of words that use the digraphs sh, wh, ph, th, and ch. Discuss why it is important to learn about consonant digraphs.
Explain that digraphs are two letters that make a sound together, like in "cheese" or "phone." Students will look at examples of words with consonant digraphs at the beginning as well as at the end. Students will follow along and read the words to practice digraph sounds. Next, they will look at a group of words and identify the words that have the digraphs sh and th. They will also sort words by their digraphs. Then, students will complete words by dragging consonant digraphs.
Students are given ten questions which ask them to find and identify common consonant digraphs.
Students will recall what they learned: - What is a common consonant digraph? - What are some examples of a consonant digraph?
