This 100-page unit is designed to introduce beginning consonant blends to your primary students. The unit is based on "Blend Friends" -animal puppets that introduce a pair of consonant blends. Each blend friend writes a letter to the class filled with consonant blends. There is an activity that goes along with each letter. The letters are meant to be introduced to the whole group. For practice, this unit also contains consonant blend literacy center activities. Each activity comes with a printer-friendly black & white recording sheet to encourage student accountability.
My kindergarten students responded so well to Blend Friends! Since consonant blends are a first grade Common Core Standard, this packet would be appropriate for kindergartners that need a challenge, first grade students, and possibly for second graders as a review.
The initial consonant blends included in this unit are:
fr, fl, br, bl, gr, gl, pr, pl, cr, cl, tr, tw, sl, st
Here are the unit contents:
