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)
