Many words begin with a digraph. That means two letters come together
and make a brand new sound. You cannot sound out the word by using
each letter’s sound because they have changed into a new sound.

The resources above cover the following skills:
Reading: Word Recognition, Fluency, and Vocabulary Development: Students understand the basic features of words. They see letter patterns and know how to translate them into spoken language by using phonics (an understanding of the different letters that make different sounds), syllables, and word parts (-s, -ed, -ing).
Phonemic Awareness: Demonstrate an awareness of the sounds that are made by different letters by: distinguishing beginning, middle, and ending sounds in word; rhyming words; clearly pronouncing blends and vowel sounds.
