Give, Swap, Share linky!

I am so proud to be a part of the latest Swap, Share, Give linky from Downunder!  This time we have chosen the theme "A linky for all seasons" as her in Australia we are in Autumn heading to Winter but many of our Northern Hemisphere friends are enjoying the Spring sunshine getting ready for Summer!

This time I have been paired up with Chantelle from Miss Jacob's Little Learners. 

 I chose to review her Digraph's pack which is perfect for my Year 2's.  

The sounds that are covered in this pack are
sh, th, wh, qu, ph, ch, ing, oo, ou, ee, ow, gh and ck.

We looked specifically at the sh, th and ch digraphs as a review from last term.

I put up the cute little posters that came with them and then introduced the first activity.

The first thing I chose to use was the Digraphs Cookie sort.  My kiddos just loved putting the cookies in the correct jar and it was a great way to do a quick assessment to see who remembered their sounds.  I heard a great discussion between a couple of my kiddos about where the sound was in the words which was great!

There is also a great little bingo game that I put as a small group activity.  Put the word bingo on the end of anything and my kiddos are all over it.  This was an easy to make pack and was a great way for my kids to review these sounds.

Now onto the Sharing!  Just for you I have this super cute Contraction Caterpillar  activity which is a part of my Spring Contractions pack.  Kiddos love to make this caterpillar and it is a fun way to show kiddos how contractions work.  Just click on the pic below to download your FREE copy!

  7. I have seen those digraph posters on pinterest and thought they looked great. I had no idea they were Chantelle's. Those sorts look far more engaging than the boring paper ones we do.

  8. Thank you so much for the lovely review Tania! So glad your kids enjoyed using them! :)
