# This Week in Kindergarten

Week 15

## Digraphs: th & sh

Print out pictures of words with either "th" or "sh" sounds in them. Have your child sort these into two different groups: one for "th" words and one for "sh" words.
When introducing digraphs show students pictures of things that begin with two different digraphs like "th" and "sh." Have them say the word with you and help you sort them into different sections in a pocket chart.
