It is recommended that you print these on cardstock and laminate prior to use. This will allow you to reuse this printable year after year! Next cut out each puzzle. I prefer to cut out each puzzle with a paper cutter and then go back and cut the puzzles out with scissors. Each puzzle will have two pieces.

Doing Spring Digraph Puzzles

consonant blends

Students will start this activity by placing all of the puzzles pieces on the floor. First, they will use an umbrella digraph puzzle piece. I would always encourage my students to say and trace the digraph with their finger.


Next, they will sort through all of the puzzle pieces looking for the puzzle pieces that matches the the digraph.

Once all four digraphs have been placed around the umbrella puzzle piece, the puzzle is complete.
Students will continue these steps until all puzzles have been finished.

What I LOVE about these is that there is a black and white option. This allows students to take ownership in their learning and decorate their own puzzles. I promise they will have so much fun.

Differentiating Spring Digraph Puzzles Puzzles

Younger students, and even struggling students, may overwhelmed by all twenty puzzles at once. If this is the case, it is recommended that you provide students with only a portion of the puzzles. Once they master those, then you can slowly add in more puzzles until all twenty are included.
