A phonics digraph is a combination of two letters that represent a single sound.

A common example of a phonics digraph is “sh.” When the letters “s” and “h” are combined, they create the sound /ʃ/. This sound is heard in words like “ship,” “wish,” and “push.”

Other examples of phonics digraphs include “ch” (/tʃ/ as in “chat”), “th” (/θ/ as in “think”), and “ph” (/f/ as in “phone”).

Phonics digraphs are important in reading and spelling because they help children understand the relationship between letters and sounds. By recognizing and decoding digraphs, children can improve their reading fluency and accuracy.
