Blends Book

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 free printable blends book for grade 1 and grade 2 students includes s blends, r blends and l blends. I’ve also added in “tw” as a bonus.
