Beginning readers must not only learn to decode letters and their sounds, but they must also learn that some letters work together to make new sounds, and that vowels are not always “short.” These free Printable Digraph and CVCe Activities provide fun practice for your students as they work on identifying digraph sounds and reading long vowel words!
*Pair with our CVCe Words Centers and Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!
Digraph and CVCe Activities
Your students will love practicing digraphs and CVCe words with these “Read, Find, and Color” Digraph and CVCe Activities! They are super fun and super easy to prep. Just print and that’s it!
Printable Digraph Activities
Digraphs are two letters that work together to make a new sound. They are important to recognize and identify because there are several words that contain them.
Common digraphs taught in Kindergarten are: ch, th, wh, ph, and sh. In 1st grade these are often reviewed. All 5 digraphs are covered in this pack of printable activities.
In the printable digraph activities, students identify the digraph in the magnifying glass and search for pictures that contain that digraph sound. They color only those pictures.
Printable CVCe Activities
After students learn short vowel sounds, they are then introduced to long vowels. This usually includes learning what is often called “magic e.” This is seen in words that follow a consonant, vowel, consonant pattern with an e at the end. The “magic e” changes the vowel sound from short to long. Examples include: cape, hide, and robe.
In the printable CVCe activities, students read each word in the box. They then find the pictures that best match the words.
There are other words that contain the same long vowel sound so the students must be sure to read the words carefully before coloring the pictures.
