PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource is great for using during your word work time, centers, small group, or independent work.

The focus is on 20 double consonant beginning blends: bl, cl, fl, gl, pl, sl, br, cr, dr, fr, gr, pr, tr, sk, sm, sn, sp, st, sw, tw.

Each blend book contains the SAME activities for each of the 20 beginning blends mentioned above. There are 6 half-pages per mini-book to help reinforce reading, identifying, and writing words containing the specific blend. Those activities are...

- Cover page with beginning blend and corresponding picture
- Fill-in-the-blend with three corresponding pictures (i.e. __ink)
- Highlight-a-word (find the words containing the blend)
- Spot-the-sillies (find the nonsense words mixed in among real words)
- Trace and draw the word (2 pages)

This pack ALSO includes, 20 blend cards and a 8x11 blend poster that contains all 20 blends and a corresponding picture.

Check out the preview and ask any and all questions BEFORE purchasing. This product is editable ONLY in the event of error. Should you find an error, please kindly contact me via the "questions" section on TpT and I'll work to fix it in a timely manner :)

*PLEASE NOTE* In most cases, I tried to use words that involved basic spelling patterns that are most appropriate for kindergarten and before-Christmas first graders. I tried to avoid words that contained long vowels, diphthongs, digraphs, etc. However, in some cases I was limited by the English language and only had so many words to choose from, so some words may be a little more advanced...but offer a great reason to incorporate a teachable moment!!!! Right?!

Thanks for shopping :)

Thank you for this!! It is amazing. I only noticed that blonde was spelled wrong. You have it without the e at the end and I am not sure if that was on purpose or not!!

This is wonderful, my students LOVE it.

I have several word work packs for sale in my shop, including those for short vowels, long vowels, diphthongs, digraphs, etc. Just search "Word Work" in the quick find in my shop :)
On  May 15, 2013Rachael Mitchell (TpT Seller) asked:
These are awesome! They were on my wishlist and when I saw they were part of the packets for donating to the West, Texas fundraiser, I was ecstatic! I have started using the books to review blends and my kids love them... so simple, yet so engaging and such good review! And the posters with the blends... I love how big they are and have gotten compliments on them! I was curious as to what font you used for the blend posters/cards... I really like it and couldn't seem to find it on either of the font websites at the end of your packet. Thanks so much!

Hello! I am in love with the shape and design of the blends "posters" that you include in the package. I am wondering if you have this same design with various digraphs and phonemes as well? If not, perhaps you would be able to make them for me as a special order? I have these up in my classroom and they are too cute not to want more :)

Thanks,
Melody Bell

That's a great idea! I can add it to my summer to-do list, but can't guarantee when or if it will get done. Thanks for your sweet words :)
On  March 5, 2013Lisa Feikert (TpT Seller) asked:
How do you prep these? Do you have them all made ahead of time? I plan to use these for Word Work during Daily 5 so I would need one for each student and the thought of cutting out all these pages to make 23 books has me a little intimidated honestly! I may just leave them as a full sheet with two staples on the side rather than half sheets. I'd love to know how you do it!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 9, 2013Babbling Abby answered:
When I do mini-books with my kiddos, I just give them the uncut pages and keep scissors at the center for them to cut them out. I let the kids assemble the books when complete :)
On  February 21, 2013Miss Sampson (TpT Seller) asked:
Hello,
I LOVE the product; however, when I downloaded it, the word are blurred or they are missing in the high-light a word section and spot the sillies. Is there anything that can be done to fix this? Thanks SO much!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  February 22, 2013Babbling Abby answered:
This is an easy fix, so no worries! It sounds like you need to change your settings so Adobe Reader is the primary viewer over preview. Try that out and let me know if you have any further issues :)
On  January 26, 2013Teachers'LilHelpers (TpT Seller) asked:
Love your products! What is the name of the font you use for the titles of each page?

On  January 31, 2013Babbling Abby answered:
I've just switched computers and haven't put my new fonts on this one yet, so I'm not sure! I'm postive it's a KG font, though! You can find her on dafont.com :)
