OVERVIEW

When two letters come together to make one sound, they are called a digraph

Some words end with -ck. These letters make just one sound, like in duck. Some words end with the double letters -ss, -ll, -ff, or -zz. These double letters also make just one sound. 

Download our Digraphs: Double letters activity below. 

Match pictures to the words with digraphs, like dressbell, and buzz. Sound out each example word. Can you think of any other words with -ck, -ss, -ll, -ff, or -zz?
