Here are ideas on how to use these activities in the classroom. These activities could be used during whole group instruction, or during Daily 5!
Word Sort: “Ch” and “Silly” sort. Students can cut out words and sort them into the two categories. Or, they can choose two colors and shade in the words.
Poem: Read poem together, have them glue it into their poetry journal, highlight or circle all words with “ch”. Then, on the next page of their journal they can draw a picture to go with the poem. If time, have them read the poem to a partner.
3. Making Words: Fill in the blanks with “ch” and then have students read the word they just made. Have them draw a picture of the word they made to show that they’ve read the word.
4. Fill in the Blank Sentences: Have students read the sentences to figure out what “ch” word will make sense.
5. Riddles: Read riddles aloud to your class or small group. Have students guess the answer, and remind them that all answers have the “ch” sound.
6. “I Have” “Who Has?” Cards: Cut out all cards (30). Have students sit in a circle and give everyone 1 card. Choose a student to start. They will read their card: “I have child, who has chat?” Next student: “I have chat, who has chase?” “I have chase, who has march?” etc..
