Why Lesson Planet?
Learn that "sh" stands for /sh/ in spoken language. This digraph cannot be decoded by blending the /s/ and /h/ sounds, so /sh/ should be explicitly taught. This instructional activity gives the students practice recognizing /sh/ in speech and "sh" in print. They begin to recognize /sh/ in spoken language by listening to a tongue twister and signaling when they hear /sh/. They will also practice writing "sh."
