Digraphs Chart {printable}

October 10, 2011 27 Comments

Happy Monday (hopefully!). I can say that because we are off for the holiday…is anyone else home today?

I wanted to share a little chart I made to accompany the Consonant Blends one. Everyone left such thoughtful comments about the chart, so I wanted to offer another to say thanks.

I got these digraphs from The Reading Teacher’s Book of Lists, which I love!

My class is keeping these charts in their Language Arts folders, since we have pretty limited wall space.

They have served as a good visual reference so far, and I’m hoping the digraphs will do the same (they’re bit trickier than the consonant blends for my ELL students).

On a total and complete side note, my baby girl was very interested in the pictures I was taking of the chart (resulting in one sniffed-up document!). She’s tough to photograph, that one!

So I asked her to sit still for a better shot…

This was a happy picture, before she found out she was having a bath today!! Ok, sorry for the tangent, I couldn’t resist sharing!

And, speaking of sharing, here’s the file…

    oh my goodness…I want to kiss her face…what a cutie! Thanks for the chart…do you hear my printer? I am doing the happy printer dance.

  • Mrs. Saoud October 10, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    She is too cute! Mine gets very interested in the printer. It's a mad dash to the inkjet the minute the paper slides through. Funny!

    Love the printable but I am dying over your baby!! What is her name? How old is she??? I am a dog lover to the extreme! She is adorable!!!!! 🙂

    Thanks ladies!! Cheryl, I laughed out loud about your dog running to the printer! They're so quirky, aren't they?

    Kristin, her name is Phoebe and she's one and a half. That isn't her best picture, I'm going to have to share more–she is gorgeous and wild and the absolute love of our lives. Needless to say, she's completely spoiled!! We have two black lab boys too, Nick and Jack. They are brothers and they have HUGE hearts. They are a bit camera shy (Jack attacks the camera, well, attacks as much as a lab does!). I have some old pics of them here: Bet you're sorry you asked!!

    Oh, she's adorable!!! We lost Max, our 12 year old lab last Thanksgiving. So anytime I see labs my heart swells. I'm not quite ready to get another just yet. They are the best dogs in the world!
    Thanks for sharing the chart!

  • Kristen October 11, 2011 at 1:23 am

    Oh Tanya, I'm so sorry for your loss. We lost our 15 year old girl a couple of years ago and it was so hard.

  • Kristin October 11, 2011 at 1:35 am

    I thought Phoebe looked like a puppy! I'm going to check out your boys when I finish up this comment. 🙂
    My pups are on my "about" page. But we lost our boy, Foster, this summer. It was the worst thing ever and I still don't think I'm over it. And I can't bring myself to take his picture down. But Sidney, our girl, is just trucking along. We rescued them — they are German Shepherd mixes. Super smart, sweet, and mellow. 🙂
    BTW I didn't discover and/or begin blogging until July so I missed out on the pet linky party. But if you want to do another one, I'll be first in line! 🙂

    OHHHHH – your boys are adorable!!! Jack reminds me of Foster – big, gentle, happy!!!!! And when Foster was still with us, Sidney ran the roost, too. 🙂 It's a girl thing, I think.

    oh my, I'm heading over to your blog now to comment, what gorgeous pups!

    Sending lab love from my lab CJ 🙂


  • Kristen October 11, 2011 at 2:12 am

    Thanks for the lab love Jennifer!!! We say hello from Nick, Jack, and Phoebe!

    Thanks so much! I have been using the blends chart in one of my reading groups and it has been a big hit! I was pumped to print the digraphs one today!

  • Teacher Carrie November 23, 2011 at 2:37 pm

    I am told when I try to save your blog in google that I have to have an invitation to follow your blog- please invite me! I LOVE it! I'm a preschool teacher for 4's.
    Please? and Thank you!

    I love your blends and digraphs charts. I would love to use them as desk charts for my students. Is there a chance they could be resized?


    • Kristen November 4, 2012 at 11:52 pm

      Hi Alison, thanks! I think if you use Adobe Reader for your PDF files (it's free) there is an option to print multiples to a page, so you could print two to a page and reduce it. I hope this is of some help!

    • Anyone else using iReady this year?
I’m looking to add a little more accountability/motivation for my students, so this week we are going to start tracking our usage. My fourth graders will store their sheets in their binders so their data is kept private, then I’ll send it home in our weekly folders so parents can see progress as well.
What do you do for iReady accountability? I would love to hear more ideas!
Please click the link in my profile if you’d like a copy of this sheet for your class (

    • This closet!!! It has NEVER been organized in all my years in this classroom!
Honestly, I would pile things in there and slam the door fast, in hopes the pile wouldn’t collapse 😂
So I FINALLY got some shelving and sorted everything into bins...and I am in heaven.
Now if only all bins were the same color blue...

    • Need a last-minute valentines gift for your class?
Or is it just me who is frantically doing this now? 😂
These are some editable coupons I shared years ago on my blog that are perfect for those no-cost presents. I’ve been saving our scholastic points, so everyone is getting a coupon to choose a book for our classroom library tomorrow. 📖❤️
Please click the link in my profile if you would like a copy! I hope some of you can use them!! (

    • Binders, folders, or notebooks?
Over the years I’ve become a binders kind of girl...I tried to go with notebooks again this fall and it wasn’t the same. There’s just something about having everything all in one place.
So in January, I switched back to binders and I’m so glad I did. I use prenumbered tabs which saves A TON of time in setting them up (see the last pic). I try to number the handouts in the bottom corner to match the tab number it belongs in (when I remember to 😉) but really it’s a great exercise in following directions as papers are handed out if I don’t remember to number them.
My fourth graders LOVE their students from last year mention them when they come back to visit (it was actually thanks to them I got binders again, since they enjoyed them so much). Next fall, it’ll be binders from the start for us!
Do you like binders, folders, or notebooks? Or a combination?

    • I received a few questions on how to get the day count on @planbookcom, so I wanted to share it here (it’s super quick!).
If you go into the Display settings, you will find a drop down menu under “Date Styling”.
Click the check box next to “show school day counter” and you should be all set!
I have a couple of blog posts about planbook and I’m working in some updated ones to share soon...anything in particular you’d like to see more about?

    • Did you know you can add little check boxes to Google Sheets? ✅
I’m REALLY trying to get more ahead in my lesson planning so I can have my weekends free...and this little check box tool is helping with just that!
I set up a Sheets doc with each subject area I need to plan for. In the second column, I added the check boxes (you can find them under Insert).
It’s a really nice feature for those little checklists you want to reuse each week! Now back to lesson planning 😬
