The "-tch" Sound

Welcome back to Read Not Guess. Today we’re going to work on the “-tch” sound.


Remember that we’re going to focus on the sounds the letters make. Both parent and child will need to be able to see the screen.


Ok, let’s get started.


Word Practice


We’re going to start by blending the “ch” sound in words. Your child can start slowly by saying each sound individually, but each time they should try to blends the sounds faster and faster until they come out as one clean word:


it ch

it ch

itch


Did they get it right? If they’re still reading it as “it-chuh” by the end, have them keep blending it faster until they’re reading the word “itch” cleanly and smoothly.


Let’s do a few more:


w itch

witch


And:


p itch

pitch


And:


st itch

stitch


Now let’s try some with different vowels:


h atch

hatch


And:


m atch

match


And:


cl utch

clutch


And:


sk etch

sketch


Silly Sentence Challenge


If you think your child is ready, see if they can read this:


Did you have your lunch in the kitchen?


If they read it smoothly, great! If they stumble, have them sound it out another time or two until they get it right.


That’s it for today. We’ll see you next time.
