Blends and Digraphs Fluency Books:
This product contains two booklets for students to read:
* My Book of Blends
* My Book of Digraphs
CONSONANT BLENDS = two or more consonants, when combined make a certain sound and TWO SOUNDS ARE HEARD
DIGRAPHS = two consonants, when combined make a certain sound and ONE SOUND IS HEARD
Each booklet comes in two versions.
Each sound is represented by a dot. Each blend is represented by 2 dots linked together while each digraph or r-controlled vowel is represented by one dot. The students will touch each dot, make the sounds and blend them to read the word.
Example: f - l - a - g flag f - i - sh fish
The students will read all the words on the page and color a star after each time they read them.
These two booklets will give your students lots of practice with reading words that contain consonant blends or digraphs in order to improve their word recognition and reading fluency.
You can use these booklets with small groups for several days before Guided Reading. The students can also take the booklets home and study them with a parent until they can read all the words fluently.
Just print the pages and give them to the kids to create their own booklet. They only have to cut each page in two and staple the pages in order.
