Beginning Blends

First grade students are continuing to work with beginning blends. Beginning blends consist of two or more consonants at the beginning of a word.  Together, they make a sound in which each letter is heard.  In previous weeks, we have focused on l-blends (bl, cl, fl, gl, pl, sl) and r-blends (br, cr, dr, fr, gr, pr, tr).  This week, we will focus on the following s-blends: sc, sk, sm, sn, sp, and st.  Stations will include s-blend poems (completing missing letters and reading), partner reading books (identifying s-blend words), matching beginning blend tiles, typing our spelling words, and other games focused on beginning blends.  In addition to nightly spelling practice, ask your child to identify beginning blends in words he or she hears, reads, and writes.
