Words with consonant blends

Here are lists of words with consonant blends to help you do the activity from the video. Consonant blends are excellent for teaching your child to hear sounds in words because they have to listen very carefully to all the sounds. Try to work through one list (10 words) each day with your child. Begin by dictating the words to your child so they can practice hearing and writing sounds. Practice any letters your child is forming incorrectly.  Once they have written each word, ask your child to read the list of words.

Reading and writing requires different skills. When we read words we say and blend letter sounds, but when we write words we hear and write letter sounds.

Note: This page is ‘paper friendly’, which means you can easily access and read the words using your phone while working with your child. I have created the font large enough so that your child can read the words from your phone. If you do want a hard copy of the words, click here
