Dinosaur Digraph Activity!
This Dinosaur Digraph Activity is a fun, hands-on way for children to read and sort digraphs! You can also pair up children or have them work alone independently!
Simply print, laminate and cut! You might want to print a few sets if you’d prefer individual use. You can also enlarge it and use in a small group teaching or whole class teaching setup.
Fun Tip: We like to use small baskets or grab bags to make the activity a little more fun! Simply place the digraphs cards in a basket and have children choose one at a time and match the dinosaur egg word to the proper dinosaur digraph!
The 6 digraphs covered here are “ph”, “sh”, “ch”, “wh”, “th” and “ck”. Depending on your method of introducing digraphs, this could be split up to use one dinosaur- one digraph, at a time.
Then at the end mix it all up for revision purposes.
How to Use the Digraph Cards
Match the correct eggs (words) to the dinosaurs (digraphs). When playing individually, a student can simply spread out the eggs so that the words are visible, and match it to the dinosaur cards.
When playing as a group (6 max, one dinosaur per child,) place the eggs face down in the middle of the table.
Each player gets a turn to pick up one egg and see if it is a word that fits with his/her digraph card. If it does, he/she keeps it, if not it is placed back.
Play until the first player fills up all all his/her cards. That is 4 eggs on a card.

Keep in mind that your kiddos should be able to independently read the words and sort them according to the digraph (thus being able to recognize the digraph, to segment the word) to be successful with this game.
