Digraphs Logic Tile Cards are a fun, hands-on way for students to learn about digraphs! These tile cards will challenge students by having them use their logic and spelling skills to complete a variety of digraph words, using only four out of the five digraph letter tiles (digraph tiles included in this file). Each card will have one unused digraph letter tile to create more of a challenge. Many cards have words where multiple digraphs fit in one word (i.e. ba____ could “bath” or “back”), so students will be challenged to use their problem solving skills to figure out which digraph belongs in a particular box.
Students place the digraph letter tiles on the “digraph place mat” at the bottom of each tile card before beginning. This is a great time to reinforce and practice the sound each digraph makes. This center can also be done with a partner, where students take turns trying to complete the four words on the tile card together.
Students are able to see their success in working through these tile cards, as they keep track using their own Tile Card Tracker (also included in this file). Once a tile card is completed and checked by the teacher, students get a “star” on their Tile Card Tracker and they are allowed to choose another card to complete.
Logic Tile Cards make a great center activity, either for small group, or independent student practice. Directions are included with each set, so parent volunteers can easily run a tile card center too. Once students get the hang of how to complete a tile card, this becomes a fun and easy go-to center for students!
