Blend Buddy Crew uses visual clues to help new readers understand consonant blends and anchor that understanding to memorable cartoon characters. The character, or Blend Buddy, is a visual representation of the blend. Hints are wrapped into each character’s name, appearance, and identity. The blend being taught is on a sign that each Blend Buddy holds. If the student is able to identify and name the blends, then they have learned the concept without realizing it.
R Blend Buddy Character cards include:
BR - Brown Bread
CR - Crabby Crab
DR - Drummer Drum
FR - Freddy French Fry
GR - Great Granny Grape
PR - Proud Prize Present
TR - Trash Troll
Keep students engaged and wanting to learn more as they collect all of the Blend Buddies!
Perfect for teaching and reviewing one on one, in small groups, or with the whole class.

The cards are designed to go on a metal binder ring for easy storage and reference.
