Print this Consonant Digraph Ch coloring page in D'Nealian or Standard block font and a chimpanzee coloring page 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 cherries coloring page and write letter Ch and the word cherries on the margins.
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.
