Did you know that the pronunciation of many blends in the English language aren't as straightforward as they seem. The 'Ch' blend actually has three different sounds. The most common is the 'ch' heard in 'chip', then there's the 'ch' heard in 'anchor' and the 'ch' heard in 'chef'. Because of this, I created this booklet - The Three Sounds of 'CH'. These word types are taught using illustrated silly short stories, word lists and examples in context. Each student can then use the word search and crossword puzzles provided to strengthen his/her word recognition skills and finally, write his or her own silly story using the ch words given. It is both a tutorial and a practice booklet. The final pages contain a CH word quiz and an answer key for the three types of CH words. Great for Grades 3 - 4!

- Teacher Nyla
- As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
