Simply print the free printable and have fun working on improving reading, spelling, and phonics skills. Children learning to segment words will benefit from an activity where they would segment and blend the word to identify the initial sound. This in turn helps the kids understand what sound the two letters together make. There are so many ways to have the kids do this.

Blends activities for 2nd graders

I like to get the kids stressing the sound that they hear in each word, for instance “blueberry”… They would say “BLueberry” stressing on the beginning blend “BL”. And so on…

This activity includes four blends, bl, br, cl, and cr. There are picture cards which include pictures of common blends.

cl blends worksheets

Differentiation: I love having activities to include for my ESL/ELL kids. They especially find sounding out activities difficult. You could choose to include a number of cards for bl and br and not cl and cr to help ESL kids work on distinguishing between two blends at a time.

This fun activity gets the kids distinguishing between these four blends!

Consonant Blends Activity

  • Stack the cards with the pictures of the blends however way you want (you can choose to use two or four blends).
  • Place a die on top of each deck to show that if the kids roll that number then they pick a card from that deck and so on.
  • The kids will roll the die and choose a card from that deck of cards. They look at the picture and say the word, then they identify the beginning blend sound and write the blend on the graph. They can use crayons or markers as they graph too.
