Ending Blends

Are your 1st graders ready to practice reading blends? After spelling blend words, practice reading them and finding them on a page, it is time to read them in context. (In case you missed what is an ending blend or our fun, hands on practice with n blends – make sure you take a peak)

Often times this is the hardest part for my little girl. Remembering the sounds the vowels make while reading them with other CVC words, can be quite challenging. So It is always great to practice them with sentences that are in large print, and working through just one sentence at a time. There will be a time to read them in a story, but for us, we need baby steps. SO I created these Read and Color blends pages.

They are written with large print, she can focus on one sentence at a time, and there is also some fun fine motor practice!

Blends Activity

Before jumping in to the blend activity, many children can not just jump into blends. They need to practice spelling them, reading just the word, and listening to the sounds the blends make.

If you are looking for words to spell, you may want to check out (link to the first submission) this post. It will give you a list of “N” blends to spell, and give your kiddos the chance to read just the word. Or you can give it a try digitally.

And depending on the level of your reader, you may want to review these sight words too!!!

I, can, like, have, a, is, the, will, want.

Now it is time to read. If you have a reader that reading just come naturally to them….let them at it.

But if your reader needs help, I’m sure you know the drill. Helping them point to the words they are reading, and supporting them when they forget a letter sound is crucial to helping them be successful.

And once they read the sentence, they get to color in the picture that matches the sentence. Fun, Fun!!!

Enjoy this simple read and color activity that is a stepping stone to reading N blends in stories.
