My students love working on writing blends and digraphs through this fun Blends and Digraphs Write and Wipe Activity! Once my students master the ability to read and write CVC words, then we move on to introducing blends and digraphs. After introducing the sounds, I put these activity mats into their literacy center rotations. Each student will pull a card, say the word, write the word, and use the word in a sentence. When students are able to complete the activity mat with accuracy, I offer challenges to extend their learning. For example, I may challenge to combine two word cards into a sentence or write an extended sentence with a prepositional phrase, adjective, or conjunction.
All you need to complete this activity is a sheet protector, write and wipe mat, word cards, and an expo marker. To complete the workmat, each student will grab a vocabulary word card and place in the blank square on their workmat. Next, they will write the word using the box at the top. I like to have students segment each sound on their fingers before writing in the box. Once they complete the word, students will write a simple or extended sentence using the word, depending on their ability level. It helps my struggling writers to have sentence frames to choose from.
