Variations and Extensions[edit]

  • Some teachers choose to mix the double sandpaper letters in with presentations of the single sandpaper letters.

Vocabulary[edit]

The term digraph does not need to be taught to the children. You could mention it casually if you like, but it is not necessary. A digraph is a pair of letters that represent just one sound. There are more digraphs used in English than are presented in these sandpaper letters, the idea is to provide the child with one way to spell each sound used in the English language. Alternative spellings for each sound are taught in later lessons.
