What is a Trigraph

Basically, a trigraph is three letters that make one sound.  So the letters s, p, and r are all seperate, but when you put them together they make one sound in words not three seperate sounds. Learning to blend those sounds together to correctly pronounce and spell trigraph words can be difficult. But with practicek it gets easier.

If you haven’t already, start with our first set of trigraphs readers coverings spl words, scr words, and shr words. 

In this set the three trigraphs are spr…, squ…, and str…

  • sprain, sprawl, spray, spread, sprig and sprint.
  • squad, square, squash, squats, squeak, squeeze.
  • straw, strawberry, stray, stretch, strong and strum.
These sweet (and free) little trigraph readers are perfect for introducing new vocabulary and practicing reading fluency!

Trigraph activities

Look at the vocabulary lists at the backs of these books and practice reading the words together. If they are too difficult, just talk about the three letters at the beginning of each word and sound them out slowly to practice putting them together. This way, even a younger reader can keep an eye out for these words in the books as someone reads to them!

The pictures in the books will help if words need to be defined.

Before reading the books kids can use a highlighter or pencil to underline as many trigraphs as they can by looking carefully through each page. Rather than reading it first, just look for the letter patterns. Once they’ve done that go back to the beginning and read the books through properly.

Does your child understand the meanings of all the words? How is their pronunciation?
