These are a great way to enhance your daily blending lessons for all 10 units of the Benchmark program.
At our school, we felt like Benchmark Advance did not give enough blending practice each day so I made these. You may use them as your whole-group blending lessons, in small-groups, or for students to use in a center.
You can either:
- print these on 8x11” paper and put in a binder
- print them on cardstock, cut them in half, and rubber band the stack. That’s what I do.
You get a set of 2 cards for each week. So between the two cards you get 32 blending words aligned with that week's phonics skill, 6 blending sentences, and the high frequency words of the week which are also used in the 6 sentences.
Plus you will get a Cover Card and a Table of Contents.
*PLEASE NOTE that this is a new curriculum being used in California. All of my Benchmark products are inspired by the Benchmark Advance Series. All material is written by me and I have no affiliation to the company who created the Benchmark Advance Series.
