Initial blends

This Blue Bird Sorting Blends Activity is such a great way for kids to practice identifying and learning to hear blends in words. Print off the nests and birds in color on cardstock and cut apart.

Then you can either give them two  nests that start with the same consonant to help them focus on auditory discrimination or you can give them all 10 nests and let them work on them all simultaneously.

Beginning blends

Children will say the item the blue bird is bringing out loud and listen for the beginning blend sound and then place the bird in the correct nest. The 10 blends include:

  • br blend  (bread, broom, broccoli, branch)
  • bl blend (block, blanket, bleach, blueberry)
  • cl blend (clover, clam, clock, cloud)
  • ch blend (chicken, church, chocolate, chess)
  • gl blend (glass, glue, globe, gloves)
  • gr blend (grasshopper, graduate, groceries, groundhog)
  • pl blend (plug, plant, plow, pliers)
  • pr blend (princess, pricetag, pretzel, present)
  • sc blend (scoop, scarecrow, scarf, scissors)
  • sk blend (skateboard, skunk, skeleton, skyscraper)
