Do you point out letters in books while you read to your child? Does your child like to find letters he or she knows in books, on signs, and everywhere? Usually a child who is learning letters and letter sounds is fascinated by letters and loves to find letters.Looking for and practicing more than one letter phonograms can be just as much fun for young children. Phonograms are defined as the letter or group of letters that produce one sound. The letter a is a phonogram. It can make more than one sound. The letters ow are a phonogram. These letters can make more than one sound too.
I've shared common two letter phonogram flashcards for you to print and cut.
Introducing a few common two letter phonograms along with single letter phonograms (the alphabet) might be a fun thing to do. A child who is ready for more than one letter to make sounds will be better prepared to read.
Use your best judgement. You'll have to decide how many phonograms to introduce to your child at a time. I'd start slow, especially with young children. If you have an older child who knows all the alphabet letter sounds including vowel sounds, you can probably get going rather quickly with the phonogram flashcards.
