Phonics Lesson: Words with /ch/

The /ch/ sound (/tʃ/ written phonetically) is commonly confused with /sh/ (/ʃ/ written phonetically), so English language learners usually struggle to pronounce words spelled with “ch.” Our phonics lesson on “ch” words will have your students pronouncing and spelling words like cheese, cherry, match, and chair with ease!

This 12-page lesson can be broken up and completed over several days or finished all at once. The variety of exercises, including reading, writing, speaking, and word puzzles (with some fun coloring thrown in), are sure to keep your young learners engaged! Any of these activities can (and should) include pronunciation practice. Vary the pronunciation practice by having them repeat after you in some exercises, and then after each other in others.

Follow up with this fun activity for practicing /ch/ and /sh/!
