Beginning and ending blends can be tricky for children. The two consonants represent different sounds but they are pronounced in a way that can make them harder to hear! So practice is important.
Children will understand how to segment, or separate, blends with these no-prep word mapping worksheets. They will help your child hear each sound in consonant blends as they tap each individual sound. Plus, they take the guesswork out of implementing phonemic awareness with phonics when you teach your child.
Parents didn't learn how to read and to spell this way so there is an answer key for each page!
They are an easy and no-prep way to incorporate the science of reading into your literacy practice. Mapping words from sounds (phonemes) to symbols (graphemes) is the most efficient way to teach children to read and spell.
Your child will map words with blends by:
- Saying the picture name.
- Tapping the 3-5 sounds.
- Mapping the letter or letters that spell each sound.
- Writing the word.
