Why Lesson Planet?
Learners study the /ch/ digraph using a tongue twister chart, Elkonin boxes, letter manipulatives, and Bill Martin, Jr's story, "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom." They practice saying the letter sounds and making words with the letters and boxes. Next, they listen for /ch/ sounds in words and the story. Finally, they find pictures on an assessment worksheet that have /ch/ in them.
