Blends Worksheets & Printables

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.
