Consonant Digraph Worksheets and

Teaching Resources


Consonant digraphs are phonemes that are represented by two graphemes, or if you like, one sound that is represented by two consonant letters such as the SH in ship, the CH in chop, the TH in math, the NG in king, the CK in duck, and the LL in hill.


I generally teach consonant digraphs right after teaching CVC words since this allows me to review the short vowel sounds before going on to the more complicated long vowels and vowel digraphs. As such, the consonant digraph resources found here are mostly of the CVC variety where one of the consonants has been replaced by a consonant digraph.
