Alphabet Activities:

Children age 3 and under:

Print the Digraph /Sh/ coloring page and a chicks or chicken coloring image behind it or on a separate page if using paints to decorate later. Discuss other /Ch/ words found on the worksheet and word search.

Finger and Pencil Tracing: Using your selection of worksheet, 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 their coloring page.

Children can trace and color digraph Ch's. After completing coloring the letter, encourage children to color the chicken coloring page and write Ch and the word chicks or chicken on the margins. Idea: provide a few feathers to paste on the image.

Handwriting worksheet tips:

Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter, and explain the direction of the arrows and numbers 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.

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

Children ages 3+:

Digraph /Ch/ words: Digraph /Ch/ Worksheet Program and Mini-Book (short a sound) can be used as part of program of activities to reinforce letter practice and to identify related words. Read suggested instructions for using the worksheet and mini-book.
