Consonant Sh Digraph Presentation:

Explain that when letter 'S' and 'h' "tag along together" they make the Sh sound.

Invite children to make the sound. 

*Find the Sh sound:  Have the children find all the Sh's in upper and lower case on the worksheet and encourage them to circle or trace/shade them first.  Visit each child to make sure they have identified the digraph Sh's and then discuss the locations with the poster.

* Finger and Pencil Tracing:
Trace the Sh's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the digraph.  Invite the children to do the same on their coloring page (first presentation) or handwriting practice worksheet.  Encourage the children to trace the dotted letters with your choice of sharpened crayon, fine tip marker, coloring or regular pencil and demonstrate the direction of the arrows and numbers that help them trace the letter correctly.  During the demonstration, you may want to count out loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number order aids them in the writing process.

Consonant Sh Activity Worksheet and Mini Book features four Sh words: shark, sheep, shepherd, shoes.   This page and matching mini book can be used as part of  program of activities to reinforce learning this digraph. Read suggested instructions for using the worksheet and mini-book.

Discuss other letter Sh words and images:  First 'brainstorm' and ask the children about other words that have that beginning sound and write them on a board (dry erase board) as the children come up with example.  You can print Sh in a different bright color to make it stand out.  You can also display other Sh coloring pages or even make a classroom book.  Visit Letter Sh Printable Materials and coloring pages to make your choice.
