What are consonant digraphs?

Consonants are all letters in the alphabet apart from the vowels a, e, i, o, and u.

b c d f g h j k l m n p q r s t v w x y z are consonants

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 that come together to form a new sound, the /ch/ sound. I usually tell children that when ‘c’ and ‘h’ come together, they form a new sound, /ch/. It is the sound that a moving train makes (choo-choo). We make this sound when we sneeze (a-choo!). It is a good way to introduce this digraph to kids.

The first is a read and color worksheet. You will read words that begin with /ch/. The /ch/ words are in a large font and can be colored. I would suggest coloring only /ch/ sound in each word so that the child understands that these two words are read together.



Spell the ch words by sticking the word tiles

The next worksheet is one of my favorites. Cut the letter tiles and spell the word by sticking the tiles. Children love to stick and these worksheets are especially helpful when two letters come together to form a sound. The child has to say ‘ch’ and then form the sound and then stick it. It is a great activity before they begin writing the ch words.

Now comes the ‘nch’ sound. This can be slightly more confusing for kids than ‘ch’. When writing ‘nch’ most kids forget to add the ‘n’ to ‘ch’ and write it as ‘ch’ only. I thought it will be a good idea to introduce this sound separately to make it less confusing for children.
