Sh, Th, Ch, Wh

The picture isn't that great but they are at the top of my bulletin board

This blogging thing is hard to stay on top of!

I have been going through my classroom and re organizing cupboards and sorting junk I have hoarded. I am at school for 6 weeks running a summer enrichment program. So I might as well get lots done while I have to be there!

These are some posters I use to help my kids remember the digraphs Sh, Th, Wh and Ch. I print each one on a different colour of cardstock and then teach my kids these silly rhymes to help remember.

I got the idea from Teacher Tispter and then changed some to fit my kids.

I made little speech bubbles with the sayings to put beside the poster.

NOTE: In order for these posters to work you have to teach your kids these sayings in a silly voice with lots of expression!!!!

Sh: We say "Sh...the baby is sleeping"

Th: We say " rude!" and really emphasize that you have to stick your tongue between your teeth to make the "th" sound. ( how rude because you are sticking out your tongue!)

Wh: We say "That whale is huge!" ( make your hands go out big)

Ch:  We say " Karate Chop" ( and do a chopping motion with your hands.)

So thats it. Silly and simple and ALL my kids learned these sounds. Even my struggling readers.
