Blends and Digraphs-Literacy Center Puzzle

These shell shaped, ink-friendly, end of year literacy center will help reinforce blends and digraph words. My ESL/ELL students struggle with blends and digraphs, so I created this to help review and reinforce this skill. Differentiated recording sheets included.

THIS IS A BLACKLINE VERSION ONLY! Print on colored paper. A cream or blue ombre colored paper would look great to match a summer or beach theme!

This puzzle activity includes 75 words of following blends:
-sn: snake, snail, snout
-sk: skunk, skull, skirt
-sm: smoke, smell, smash
-sp: spot, spine, spoon
-st: stump, star, stairs
-sw: swing, swat, swan
-bl: blocks, black, blossom
-cl: clip, cloud, clam
-fl: fly, flute, flag
-gl: globe, glow, glad
-pl: plug, plant, planet
-sl: sloth, slippers, slug
-br: bread, brush, broom
-cr: crack, crab, crown
