Beginning and ending blends can be tricky for students. Learners will understand how to segment blends with these no-prep word mapping worksheets. These worksheets help your students hear each sound in consonant blends. Plus, they take the guesswork out of implementing phonemic awareness with phonics in your class!

They are an easy and no-prep way to incorporate the science of reading into your literacy instruction. Mapping words from sounds (phonemes) to symbols (graphemes) is the most efficient way to teach learners to read and spell.

  1. Saying the picture name.
  2. Tapping the 3-5 sounds.
  3. Mapping the letter or letters that spell each sound.
  4. Writing the word.
