As children learn to read and write, they need to be introduced to different phonics sounds and spelling patterns. These CH worksheets are perfect for introducing the CH sound and activities to follow.
The “ch” digraph is one of those sounds that students need to master, and worksheets can be a helpful tool in teaching them.
I’m including over 30 FREE printables and activities for 1st Grade Spelling Words on this blog.

Ch Worksheets for Kindergarten
Ch worksheets for kindergarten are designed to help students learn how to recognize and use the “ch” sound.
These worksheets can be used to help students learn the phonics sound, and practice reading, writing, and spelling words with the “ch” sound.
This is an example of a printable found in the pack.
The idea is that the kids get used to the same format on the sheet and hence, would complete the word by tracing it.
They will then write the word independently.
CH digraph worksheets can come in many different forms.

With phonics, there’s never a one way to teach it.
Most teachers do have to wing it. I do have to say though, winging it when you have a certain amount of knowledge verses not having that knowledge makes it SO much easier.
Some worksheets may also include activities that help students identify words that begin or end with the “ch” sound.
CH worksheets in the classroom
Let me tell you a little story about using worksheets and how sometimes, worksheets get their bad rep.
As a new teacher, I was excited to use worksheets in my classroom.
I spent hours creating and printing worksheets for my students, thinking they would be an effective tool to reinforce their learning.
However, as soon as I handed out the worksheets to my class, I could feel the energy in the room drop.
The students looked bored and disengaged as they stared at the piles of papers in front of them.
I tried to liven things up by adding some colorful graphics and interesting questions, but it didn’t seem to make much of a difference.
The students still looked uninterested and unmotivated.
As the lesson went on, I realized that the worksheets were not only boring for the students, but they were also boring for me as a teacher.
Adding just a few interactive pieces in my printables just made things A LOT more exciting for the students.
Instead of interacting with my students and providing meaningful instruction, I found myself sitting at my desk, grading papers and trying to keep track of who had finished their worksheet.
I needed to find more engaging and interactive ways to teach my students.
I started incorporating games, group activities, and hands-on projects into my lessons, and I could see the difference in my students’ enthusiasm and motivation.
Games motivate students so much and this is why I now share all these printables and games on my blog so that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
