3. Consonant Blends

~Consonant blends

Consonant blends= when 2 consonant sounds are said together, those are called blends.

If you can say and read all of the one letter consonant sounds, you can now practice putting 2 consonants together into consonant blends.

There are some consonant blends below.

The first page of consonant blends are blends at the end of words.

The next page of consonant blends are blends at the beginning of words.

(the progression for these sounds was based on the a sequence from Hooked on Phonics, a program that can be ordered on the internet)

~

Please practice:
say each of the 2 letter sound blends by itself, not in words
(if you forget a sound, look at the mouth pictures)
say each of  the blends in the word that is under that blend.
( it’s okay if you don’t know what the words mean )

Practice again and again and again.

You can look at these pictures of mouths, to help you remember each sound in the blend.
