Consonant Sh Activiity Worksheet and Mini Book features four Sh words: shark, sheep, shepherd, shoes. These materials can be used to reinforce learning this digraph. Read suggested instructions for using the worksheet and mini-book.

Find the Sh sound: Have the children find all the letter Sh's in upper and lower case on the worksheet and encourage them to circle or trace/shade them first.

Finger and Pencil Tracing:
Trace the Sh's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the digraph.  Invite the children to do the same on their coloring page (first presentation) or handwriting practice worksheet.   

Encourage children to trace the dotted letters, and demonstrate the direction of the arrows and numbers that help them trace the letters correctly. Count out loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number order aids them in the writing process.

Discuss other letter Sh words and images found in the worksheet. You can also display other Sh coloring pages or even make a classroom book.  Visit Letter Sh Printable Activiites and coloring pages to make your choice.

Advanced independent handwriting practice:
1. Print your choice of printable lined-paper and encourage children to draw a shepherd behind the page.

2. Drawing and writing paper  Encourage children to draw, and color a shepherd and write digraph Sh.
