A fun activity for practicing CH and J Sounds.

MAKE a Purple Smoothie!

When you can make a ‘ch’ and ‘j’ sound in words or with a vowel following (like ‘chew’ or ‘chair’, or, ‘jaw’, ‘Joe’) you will need to practice lots of times in words that you use every day.

This is a fun activity with lots of opportunities to practice these sounds.

First make a recipe.  List the ingredients and utensils you will need.  

Use the list to gather the items.  Get your helper to read out each one – let them know “check” as you put it out on the counter.  Tick each on off the list.
