The song introduces the diagraph by featuring 12 words starting with sh, including some sight words.



Kids songs are a good way for a child to start to learn to read – and this one is set to a catchy rap tune, features lots of colorful pictures and has a simple rhyming pattern. It is also a good song to introduce the sh sound for someone who is learning English.

The ‘sh’ sound is extremely common and appears at the beginning, middle and end of words. It appears in plenty of simple words words such as ‘she’, ‘shop’, ‘ship’ and ‘fish’, and is one of the first sound blends that children will be expected to learn as they master reading – and as such it is extremely important.

SH Sounds Lyrics

Sh is for shampoo — for when you wash your hair

Sh is for shape — like a circle or a square



Sh is for sheep — you’ll find them on a farm

Sh is for shoulder — connected to your arm



Sh is for shovel — for digging in the dirt

Sh is for sharp — if you touch it, it will hurt



Sh is for shark — it’s quite a scary sight

Sh is for shadow — when you’re blocking out the light



Sh is for shirt — you can wear it with a suit

Sh is for shoe — like a sneaker or a boot



Sh is for shave — I have one every day

Sh is for shower — to clean the dirt away
