Children Ages 3+ to 6:
Present the Consonant Digraph Ch Activity Worksheet and Mini Book program.  Read suggested instructions for using the worksheet and mini-book. These materials can be used to reinforce letter practice and to identify related Ch words.

*Finger and Pencil Tracing: Trace digraph Ch's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the letter. Invite the children to do the same on your worksheet. Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter with your choice of sharpened crayon, fine tip marker, coloring or regular pencil  and explain the direction of the arrows and numbers (on the upper right corner) that help them trace the letter correctly. During the demonstration, you may want to count out loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number order aids them in the writing process.

Find the Digraph Ch's: Have the children find all the digraph Ch's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle them first.

Advanced independent handwriting practice - advanced Kindergarten and above:
1.  Print your choice of printable lined-paper and encourage children to draw a chimpanzee behind the page or print a chimpanzee coloring page to color after handwriting practice.
