This is a set of mini lessons, in both Smartboard and PowerPoint formats, that can be used to introduce the sounds of the beginning consonant blends: S blends, L blends, and R blends. The final lesson allows the students to differentiate between words with consonant digraphs and blends.
Each lesson contains an introduction to the sounds, a blending practice activity, a word list for fluency practice, and- for the Smartboard only- a sorting activity.
Also included is a PDF file that contains word cards and sort header cards for independent, partner or group sorting activities and three worksheets for independent assessments.
*Meets both Common Core Language Arts Standards and Arizona English Language Proficiency Standards
