Your kids and students will LOVE to practice digraphs with these free printable ch worksheets. Children will learn to recognize the ch sound in different words, write it and read it, too.

So let’s dive in because there is a lot to learn today!
What is a digraph?
A digraph is made of two letters making one sound together. The most common digraphs taught in kindergarten are ch, sh, th, and wh. Think of words like chop, shoe, or wheel, and listen for the beginning sounds. They are made of two consonants but only make one sound.
Of course, there are other digraphs ( such as kn, sk, sp, etc.) but let’s focus on the basic ones first.
What is the difference between digraphs and blends?
Besides digraphs, we also teach consonant blends.
Blends are made of two consonants and each letter makes its own sound. For instance, sp is a blend and we can hear both letters separately in words like spoon, spear, spot, etc.
Ch digraph worksheets
Digraphs and blends are both helpful when first learning how to read. Once children learn that two consonants are read a certain way together – such as c and h make the ch sound, they are able to read any word with the “ch” sound in it.
We can find digraphs at the beginning of the word (like in chip), the middle of the word (like in teacher), and the end of the word (like in lunch).
