L Blends

Part of being able to read is hearing sounds and knowing which letters make that sound.  In the beginning, this isn’t too hard. Our little ones learn the sound the b makes and that it words like bat, bee, and bus start with that sound.

Then they learn that sometimes the c and the k can sometimes make the same sound. Let’s just make reading a struggle. And next, we jump into blends. And now we combine two letters to make one new sound. Our poor kiddos!

So today we have an activity to help our small readers recognize “L” blend sounds, and the letters that make up this new sound.

Cut and Paste “L” blends

For this activity, you will want to print off all the pages, and then print off page 8 twice. Next, gather up glue and scissors, and you are ready to go.  As always, we want to begin by saying the word each picture represents and having your child repeat after you.

This is important for two reasons.

  1. Many children have trouble pronouncing the “l” blend sounds, and this gives them practice.
  2. It also gives you a chance to emphasize the sound, make it easier for our little ones to hear and consequently figure out which letters make up that sound.

Once you do that, then let them try it out. Stay close by so you can repeat the word if they are choosing the wrong “l” blend.

And that’s it. Enjoy this simple “L” blend cut and paste to help children practice saying the “l” blends and knowing which letters make them.

Using Letters

I personally like this way the best, but I personally didn’t have enough of the letter l. I suggest printing on cardstock, laminating, or putting in a page protector for durability – especially if they will be used in a literacy center in a classroom.  You will need need magnetic letters: bl, cl, fl, gl, pl, and sl

Writing Blends

Another great way to do this activity is to have children write out the letters. I slipped pages 3 – 7 in a folder and let my boy write out the letters that would make the correct blend.
