Swap, Share, Give Linky Party

Today, I am so excited to be participating in this linky party with some of my favorite bloggers! 🙂

I will be talking about Melinda Crean’s Digraph Activity Pack ‘CK’. My students need so much help with digraphs and phonics – so I decided to choose this pack and it look so dang cute! 🙂


So it has been miserable and COLD the past few days in Sydney – and we return to school this week (perfect welcoming sign right!?). We’ve actually had an enormous amount of rain come down with some major flooding in some areas. Soooo, as a result only 8/25 students turned up to class this morning – honestly though I can’t blame them. It was quite horrendous overnight – I kept dreaming that I was floating on water, or that I was on the Titanic! :/

As a result of all this also, I prepared Mel’s activity pack to use with my ESL student one-on-one this week – but those two sessions were also cancelled! So, I will blog about how I will use them next week since this blog post will go out sooner then that. 🙂

First off, I love that the pack is a simple print and go type of pack. I barely had enough time to put shoes with the same color on this week – let alone worry about prepping and laminating. I love laminating, don’t get me wrong but it’s the sort of thing you can do when you have time and a cuppa, y’know?!

Anyway, here are some pictures of the pack once you’ve opened it. You get a detailed and pretty word wall that you could use are playing cards or even tracing cards.

Here are the cut and match pages with are interactive and fun! I plan to hand these out for homework once my student completes the first few pages of the pack.


Here are some more activities which allow for more ‘CK’ practice – I would get the student to pronounce the sound the ‘CK’ makes as they match the pictures to the words.

Here, they choose the correct spelling for each word according to the picture.

Here, there’s the find-a-word which I’m pretty sure my students will LOVE!

I think this page is also pretty creative – some of my students will love to draw the words here. I might actually get them to paint too!

Head on over to some more blog posts for the link hosted by the lovely Tania Poultney – at Mrs Poultney’s Ponderings.

Finally, I would like to conclude with a simple interactive freebie you can use with your students on practicing the digraph ‘CK’. You can get the students to cut and paste the lemons underneath the flaps they create once they’ve glued them into their notebooks or they can just simply glue the lemons into the cups. Just click on the image below to grab it! 🙂
