Week of Oct 28

This week we will learn about consonant blends.  Unlike a digraph (sh, th, ch), each sound of a blend is heard, but the sounds are blended together.  We will practice short vowel words that have blends in the initial position.

Focus: Initial Blends with l and r (bl, fl, sl, cl, pl, gl, fr, dr, tr, gr, cr, br, pr)

Example Words: drip, sled, plot, trim, drag, blush, drum, flush, plum, drop, crash, trip, glob, grip, trash

Red Words:  favorite, one, many (these words will be on the test)

Looking for ways for extra practice?  Go to Spelling City.  Click on the link below and look for the focus of the week.
