Once children have learned all of the individual letter sounds, they can begin to learn blends. Consonant blends are two letters that when brought together they “blend” to form a sound. The sound still allows for the individual letters to be heard. (When two consonants come together to form a new sound it’s called a digraph. Below you’ll find a handy list of the different blends and digraphs you can teach your children. Use our free Blends printables to create hand-on learning opportunities in your classroom.
