Digraph Reader Freebie!

Hi everyone! Kristen here from A Day In First Grade! As many of you know, this year I am teaching kindergarten. We currently are working really hard at locating and reading digraphs in our words. In order to help my young readers read these words, I created a few readers for them.
My students will work on these readers in guided reading. First we will play a game to warm up and then dive in to reading our text. 
First my students will trace the letters in our new sound and underline them in the word. They then will read the word. 
The next page uses the same word in a simple sentence. My students will locate the new sound they are working on and then read the sentence with fluency. 

By working on these skills, my students will have an easier time locating the digraphs in their books that they are reading. It will get them in the habit of really looking at their words and decoding all the sounds that they see. 

If you would like to read more about this process, head over to my blog to read more about it!

Have a great day,



  1. Kristin! Oh my good gracious! These will be so helpful for my struggling readers in first grade. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing!!!

  2. Thanks for sharing! These will be great to use! How did you copy them so they will line up correctly when folded like a book as shown in the pics? Also- did you copy them double sided? I would appreciate your help!

    1. Pam, I folded the front cover but the rest of the pages I cut and placed in the book correctly. I hope you enjoy the books! :)


  3. This is really lovely! Thank you !!!
