Fun With Digraphs! (and BIG news!)

Happy Saturday friends!

Ahhhh.... Christmas break!  You have finally arrived.   The first official day.  

I'm sitting in the living room watching Home Alone with my littles (although they have dozed off)!  I've got my sweet tea, my slippers on, and I'm blogging for the second time in a week.  Life is good.

This past month has been ALL about digraphs in the classroom.  In the past, I have always taught digraphs so fast (that is how the curriculum went), but now I actually get to slow down and really dive deeper into each digraph.  

To help us get to know each of the digraphs, I made these little brothers....the H brothers!  

Meet:

Charlie (CH) - the Train Engineer brother (choo choo)

Shane (SH) - the quiet brother (shirt or shhhhh)

Theo (TH) - the mean brother (he sticks his tongue out)

Wheeler (WH) - the coach (he wears his whistle)


Each week we introduced a new brother.  They introduced themselves to us and we worked with their sound (focusing on the beginning and ending digraph).

This was Theo:


We used a lot of my interactive printables from my FREE Digraphs-Interactive Style packet.




You can get all of these printables HERE!

You can also use printables from my other digraph packets by clicking on the pictures below:

BIG NEWS:  (for me at least!)

Soooo.... this break I know is going to fly by and my TO-DO list is a mile long (and growing), but first up on my list is planning for my first presentation with SDE!

I will be presenting in January at the Texas First Grade Conference for SDE!  

I will be presenting with some *amazing* presenters.....  Cara Carroll, Reagan Tunstall, and Erica Bohrer!  (I'm still pinching myself) 


I will be presenting two sessions and while I am nervous to say the least..... My excitement is starting to take over!  I will be surrounded by amazing educators and I am so excited to meet so many new faces.

My two sessions are:


So.... while I should be enjoying my break, I will at least be enjoying getting things ready for after the break!

So if you are in Texas..... you should sign up and come join us in the FUN!

Hope to see you there :)
