I was inspired to make this cute quilt by http://www.fantasticfirstgrade.com. Mrs. Oakes has a cute quilt for sight words. I wanted to make one to compliment our Jolly Phonics programme. My kids are OBSESSED with finding digraphs in every word they meet either on a worksheet or as I write stuff on the white board. I sometime think that they have a secret competition to be the first to spot them outside of English class! So if you can’t beat them, join them…
I have created two different quilts. The shorter one covers the basic Jolly Phonics Digraphs and the longer one includes some advance digraphs such as the magic e.
