We have been busy learning about Consonant Blends and Digraphs!
A consonant blend is when 2 or more consonants are blended together but each sound may be heard in the blend. Examples include: bl, br, cl, cr, dr, fr, tr, fl, gl, gr, pl, pr, sl, sm, sp and st. Blends can also occur at the end of words. Common 3 consonant blends include: str, spl and spr.
A consonant digraph is when 2 consonants stand together to represent a single sound. Examples are: sh, ch, th, and wh. Digraphs can also occur at the end of words.
When reading with your child, please point these blends and digraphs out to them for extra practice!
