A digraph is two letters that make just one sound.
A consonant digraph is two adjacent consonants that produce one speech sound. They are not blends.
c and h are two consonants which come together to form a new sound, the /ch/ sound.
Before attempting this pack, try Pack 1 of ch sound words. It has easier words and is best if you are introducing the ch sound words.
In this particular pack, we will be focusing on the nch sound where ch is preceded with the sound n. This sound can be confusing since children sometimes find it difficult to register the ‘n’ sound which comes before ch specially when writing nch words. Therefore, it’s a good idea to do the nch sound separately.
In the above worksheet, reach the nch words and highlight the nch sound.
The next is a word sort cut and paste worksheet for nch words. Cut the word tiles and paste them in the correct box.
Read the nch words in the word bank. Identify the pictures and write the words under them.
The next is the ch digraph sentences worksheet. The words are scrambled. Unscramble the words to form a logical sentence. Write the sentence using basic punctuation in the space provided.
Pack 1 of ch words has simpler ch words and nch words. Do attempt those worksheets first.
The last ‘word puzzle’ worksheet is a kids favourite. There are six pictures which need to be cut along with the letters. Cut along the dotted line too. Now give your child three tiles for the first word and let him form the picture and read the word under it.
I make the kids stick word puzzles in their notebooks. We stick one puzzle and write a simple sentence containing that word. For e.g. We sat on the bench. That is an inch worm etc.
