What is a blend?
A blend is when two or more consonants are blended together, but the letters in blends all make a separate sound.
Bl would be an example of the consonant blend. So the word blender has the blend of bl.
You sound out b and l sounds in the word.
Beginning blend examples are: bl, br, cl, cr, dr, fl, fr, gl, gr, pl, pr, sc, sk, sl, sm, sn, sp, st, sw, tr.
Each of the books has one blend on on the page with a matching picture and sentence. You can see one of the page below.
