This packet includes seven initial blend sorts: bl & br, cl & cr, fl & fr, gl & gr, pl & pr, sl & sw, sp & st. Each sort includes eight pictures total, four for each blend. Each sort is followed by a page for the students to write the blend words from the pictures under the correct blend category. Three practice sheets are letter exchange pages, where the students must exchange the first letter of one blend word for the first letter of another blend word to make two new blend words. These practice sheets help students develop decoding skill. The next three practice sheets are designed to help students use blend words in sentences. Each page has three pictures, and the students must use the blend word from a picture in a sentence. Answer keys are included.
