SplashLearn - The complete Pre-K - Grade 5 Math & ELA Learning Program Built for Your Child
Learning digraphs is essential because kids wouldn't recognize new words if digraphs made a single sound. The letter “P” and “H” are combined to make a third sound. With SplashLearn's games, the kids start pronouncing the Digraph PH and later move to identify the words with this sound.
Introducing Digraph PH Games for Better Understanding of Phonics
The digraph represented by the letters PH produces the sound /f/. Learning to read digraphs will aid kids in reading some of the words they will come across in all subject areas.
The letter following the PH sound makes the liaison complete the word. For example, nephew is pronounced as ne-f-ew. Contrarily, "phone" sounds like "f-one."
Teaching digraphs can be enjoyable, and most children are eager to learn them after they have studied the more familiar alphabet letter sounds. But, as with anything, you must first introduce, reintroduce, and then practice, and more practice.
Introduce them to new words that will have the PH digraph. Practice the sound by pronouncing the PH sound distinctively. Once they are used to the simpler or one-syllable words, move to two-syllable ones. For instance, you can start with words such as "graph" and then teach them words like autograph.
Build a strong foundation of language in your kids through the timely introduction of digraph letters and their phonetics. That is because when you individually use the sounds /P/ and /H/, they make "puh" and "huh" and when you combine them, the sound of /ph/ becomes /f/.
Learning while Playing
Kids of a lower grade find it challenging to sit and learn for longer durations. Engaging the kids with online games is the best way to teach them. SplashLearn's educational and interactive platform offers various games to explore and build words with digraph PH. Let your kids have fun and know to pronounce the /PH/ sound correctly.
