Our word work involved trigraphs this week.
So we made these tri-flap books.

The students categorized their spelling words on the inside of the booklet.
They also went on a word hunt to find words with trigraphs in their decodeable readers.

I find that when I do these sorts of activities with our spelling pattern each week, the students are so much more aware of other words with the same pattern.  I had at least 5 students come up to me and show me words with trigraphs in their books that they were reading during silent reading time!
 I love that!

Blessings to you,


  1. I ♥ this idea...looks like something I could totally do with my kiddos...thanks for sharing! How did you make those super cute letters, or did you buy them?

  2. I love flip books! I do it with shapes and when they open it they put the characteristics of that shape! Very engaging :)

  5. Neat idea! I hadn't heard or trigraphs before, but I get it! I am "pinning" this onto my Word Study Ideas board on Pinterest! Thanks for sharing!
