ch digraph

You can start by introducing that we are going to learn more about consonant blends today and a new grapheme. In today’s lesson, we will discuss 2 consonants i.e. c and h when come together to make a single sound known as a consonant digraph /ch/.
You can even recall the digraph we have done before to brush up:


2. ch words with pictures

In the next step. Try to bring up the picture cards with ch words. That works very well with children of small ages. Kids love visual learning. You can simply start by showing pictures to the children one by one.

And let them guess the name of the things or objects shown on the picture card. Such as you can begin with the chair picture or simply point it out to the real chair and let them guess. You can even point out it has one more digraph and let them guess.

Yes! you are correct it’s ai digraph. If they need clues you can give clues such as which we sit on it while we study and so on.


3.  ch words sound

How to teach the ch sound? Sound of ch – Here we will learn the sound of ch. Next, you can write big C on the board let them recall the sound of the letter C. Then you can proceed with the sound of the next letter h on the board. Now let them know when you blend these two letters together it gives us a brand new sound i.e. /ch/.In this way, you can start practicing ch words phonics. You can repeat this phase in different voices such as:

  • loudly
  • softly
  • quietly
  • quickly
  • slowly

8. Reading a Story – the story with ch words

kids reading

Reading aloud a story with ch words is an amazing idea. You can simply read the story all over again and let them know it is around the grapheme we are learning today. I love to read Choosy Chester the Chimpanzee story with my little ones in the class. After reading you can ask them which grapheme they can listen to most often in the story. Let the children learn about the words containing ch is coming in the story. I mean the spellings beginning with ch. The spellings end with ch. And the spelling has ch somewhere in the middle.


9. 1-Minute Game


  • The lower ability has to circle the words starting with the ch digraph in one minute
  • The middle ability ones have to draw the words starting with the ch digraph in one minute
  • The higher-ability ones have to write as many names as they remember with the ch digraph.
    Children love to play games and I am sure they will thoroughly enjoy fun-based learning 1-minute games with this grapheme.

ch words that sound like k

There are some words that are exceptions to this rule and are pronounced as /k/ Such as in:

school epoch scholar
inchoate schooner chrome
