4-Letter Phonetic Word Cards with Consonant Blends
$3.95 – $22.95
These consonant blend lesson cards are the next step to building a strong foundation for reading. They were designed similar to the sets above and include carefully selected words to help your child master this phase in word reading. It’s important that no advanced phonics are used at this stage beyond the skill of consonant blending. These sets are organized into fun categories to add interest and enjoyment. There are seven sets of cards each matching a different theme.
Contrary to what many believe, children do not need to practice reading a list made up exclusively of one consonant blend such as “pl” in words like “plan”, “plot” and “plod” or a list of “st” words like, “stop”, “stun”, and “stub”. It’s much easier to practice only the skill of blending consonants and skip list reading. blending consonants is a skill that translates to all lists. Special practice with blending and segmenting will make the job of consonant blending even easier.
