Blends Book - Color & Trace

These awesome blends books will help kids get to know blends in no time!
FREE Blends Book for kids to color and trace - this is a fun way to help kids learn s blends, r blends, l blends, and tw blends. This is perfect for kindergarten, first grade, and 2nd grade students for centers, homeschool, homework, extra practice, and summer learning which will help them with phonics for better reading and spelling.

Blends are easy to spot. 

When you sound out a blend slowly, such as "fr" you can still hear the individual "f" and "r" sound. Where as with a digraph, you only hear the one sound. For example, when we say the digraph "sh", we don't sound it out as "s" and "h", only "sh". 

This book includes s blends, r blends and l blends. I've also added in "tw" as a bonus


Blends Mini Book

Print the blends book and cut out the pages - there are four book pages per sheet. Then staple the book together on the left hand side.

To Play
Choose a blend to work on such as "gr". Say the blend "gr" and say it slowly so you can hear the individual "g" and "r" sounds. Then trace over the blend and color in the picture.

Extension Activity
On the back of each page get the kids to write down other things that start with that blend.
