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, 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.
