What are consonant blends?
If you are new to phonics instruction, you will first want to understand consonant blends.
Consonant blends are a pair of letters that a reader can clearly hear when read. For example, in the word grass, children can hear both the g and the r sound.
In the word swing, the s and the w can be heard.
Unlike digraphs, consonant blends are combinations that children can sound out.
Beginning consonant blends are found at the beginning of the word. They will be the first two letters. Examples of words with beginning consonant blends are swim, blue and train.
Assembling your consonant blend booklets
- Begin by printing your booklets.
- Cut each page in half.
- Stack the pages and staple.
Practicing using these booklets
These booklets are designed to have simple, repetitive text. The goal is that with a little practice, children will be able to read these texts independently.
Each page contains a simple sentence along with a picture to color. Children will also be instructed to find and circle the blend word in the sentence. They can also trace the focus word on each page.
Once children have practice these booklets, they can add them to their bag of books for independent reading practice.
