Scooping up some digraphs!

How are your students doing with digraphs?  Many of my students have a really good handle on them - they can read them, sort them and even use them properly in their writing.
Then there are the rest... I'm trying everything I can think of to give them practice.  They have enjoyed both my popcorn sort and my bubblegum sort but I needed something new.  For days I tried to think of a new theme for an activity that I could pull put again and again.  Then it came to me ...ice cream!!!
While making this on the weekend I had to go and buy some ice cream - yummy!
This activity has students sorting picture cards onto 4 different ice cream cones.  The cones are labeled with /ch/, /sh/, /th/ and /wh/.



I have included with a color and black & white copy.  However, when you see these ice cream scoops you're going to want them in color - ADORABLE!
There is an I can... card included and a recording sheet to check for understanding.
You can find this activity HERE at my TPT store.  As always I'd like to give away a few copies to those of you who visit me here.  The first 5 people to leave a comment will get a copy :)

Enjoy the rest of your week :)
