Grade Levels: K-3

These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Th, Sh, and Wh topic on BrainPOP Jr.


Have your child pick a paragraph or passage from a book, magazine, lyrics, or other form of writing. Then have him or her find all the words that use sh and replace them with words that do not have sh. This is a fun challenge that reinforces the role of digraph words in everyday life, and provides a great way to develop vocabulary and discover new synonyms!

Tongue Twisters

Remind your child that a tongue twister is a sentence or poem that is hard to say aloud because it repeats the same or similar sounds over and over again. You may want to share different examples with your child. Then write or create a tongue twister together, using the th, sh, or wh sound over and over again. Encourage your child to make illustrations to go along with his or her tongue twister.
