Phoneme blending is an important part in learning to read. Understanding that words are made up of individual sounds, or phonemes, is a building block for learning to decode individual words. Phoneme blending involves pulling together individual sounds within words.
With the activities included, your students will have a variety of opportunities to practice blending sounds in CvC words. Activities can be differentiated to suit the needs of your learners as they are included for word families, single short vowel focus, two short vowel focus, or a mixed vowel activity page.
*Note, the nasal sounds of short a (-am, -an) were kept in activity pages together. Also not all short vowels have word family activity pages.
How to Use:
Students will tap out the sounds, blend the sounds together, write the word made, and then match the word to a picture.
