I’ve been trying to find interesting and fun resources for our little learners, for classroom and distance learning. To work on phonetics I created these Digital Digraph Word Building Activities to help build our student’s vocabulary. You’ll find these are available on three different platforms: Google Slides, Seesaw, or Boom Cards.
Digital games and activities are an exciting way to get our students engaged in the curriculum. When we introduce new things and new learning tools, our kids can’t help but want to dive on in.
As we teach our emerging readers how to decode unfamiliar words, we use word patterns like in this digital digraph activity. The look of amazement they have as they see these letters producing a whole new sound is what makes teaching our young learners so rewarding.
By making a connection between language and digital activities our students will begin to see reading as fun and not just a learning activity.
We’ll see our little learners begin to make the connection with words and sounds in everything around them. With digital activities, whether in the room or learning at home, we find our students asking to play these new games.
We like to incorporate literacy in many different activities and different types of resources. Nothing says fun like hands-on interactive games!
As students work on word building and towards mastering this skill, they show what they know with match-up activities like this Flowers Ending Sound Match-Up and Popcorn Blends Match-Up. They are also building their phonetic awareness through practice with these CVC Spelling Digital Activities.
To really show off their newfound reading skills, we put together our very own books like this I see Ocean Animals Interactive Reader and I See Fall Interactive Reader. We just can’t get enough of seeing our students as they become confident readers.
Because playing literacy games and activities is a great way to get kids learning without realizing they’re learning.
We’ve created these Digital Digraph Word Building Activities to connect literacy with the digital world. Digraphs can be a challenging concept to teach, so finding an entertaining way to teach this concept makes the learning more enjoyable.
Implementing these Digraph Digital Activities will help our students to learn that when we pair letters together, they make a brand new sound. It Shows them that there are times when a word must be read and not sounded out.

Using the Digital Digraph Word Building Activities
These activities are completely digital and are user-friendly. You’ll find they come with specific step-by-step instructions and illustrations to guide you through. We’ll show you how to assign the digraph activities to your students quickly and easily either via Google Slides, Seesaw, or Boom Cards.
To start working on building their words, our little readers will identify the picture in the square located on the bottom left-hand side of their screen. This student is working on the picture “shorts”
They will then search for paired initial sound to build the word in the box next to the picture. I always have my students say the digraph sound out loud as they are choosing it to drag into place. She then chose the digraph “sh” to complete the word.
After the word is built they can then move onto the next picture and find the digraph that will complete that word.

Here a student is looking for the beginning sound digraph for the word “thunder”. As she recognizes the digraph “th” she’ll drag down the duck to complete the word.
