Teaching children to read can be a challenge. While some kids seem to pick it up naturally, others need lots of support and direct teaching. Each new sound, or new blend must be taught.  So today, we are giving our young readers a chance to learn, spell, and identify ending s blends.

We have lots of fun blend activities to make learning to read fun for students!


S Blends

Start by scrolling to the bottom of the post, under the terms of use, and click on the text link that says >> Download <<. The pdf file will open in a new window for you to save the freebie and print the file.

Print the cards in color on cardstock. Next, cut them out and laminate if you want to make it extra durable. This is particularly a good idea if you are using them in a classroom literacy center. These are handy whether you are a parent, teacher, or homeschooler.

Clip cards require just a little prep, but then they can be used over and over again.

S Blend Words

Before handing your child the ending s blend clip cards, it is important that your little ones practice spelling them out with magnetic letters.

Begin by introducing a blend.  Have your child practice saying it while they run there finger under the letters. And then add letters to the blend to make words or even nonsense words.

Here are some words you may want your kiddos to spell:

  • sk blends – ask, desk, mask, tusk,
  • sp blends – wasp, clasp, grasp, gasp
  • st blends – cast, nest, fist, list

Now it is time for the clip cards. The first few times you may want to sit down with your little one and say the name of the picture for them.

Then have them read through the words on the card. Some will be nonsense words but the focus is on the different s blends. SO even if it isn’t a real word or the correct word, they are getting the experience of reading “S” blends.

Once they read through all the words if they still can’t seem to clip the word, hide the clip card, have your little one spell the word. Then see if they can find the correct word on the card.

It is a simple activity, but there is so much reading involved, and will really help your child get used to the sounds the “S” blends make.
