Free Printable Blend Ladders: Beginning Sounds

Consonant blends are one of the areas you learn after some of the basic CVC words. These are when you put two consonants together and each makes its own sound.

Today I have some free consonant blend ladders to help with learning those beginning sound blends.

Each of the ladders is a fun way to work on learning the blends sounds and making words.

The blends consonant ladders are ways for kids to work on the blend sound of the two letters with vowels.

What is the Consonant Blend?

Consonant blends are when you have two letters together and each still makes its own sound. So an example of a blend would be “bl”. You saw the b sound and the l sound when saying the word “blanket”.

The consonant blends are bl, br, cl, cr, dr, fl, fr, gl, gr, pl, pr, sc, sk, sl, sm, sn, sp, st, sw, & tr.

These ladders work on one blend at a time. You can see the blend and the vowel on the ladder below.

I like to print on cardstock and laminate these blend ladders to help them last longer.

Things to use with the Blend Consonant Ladder Printables

I always get asked what I use with my printables. And these are the items we have used with the blend ladders or mention in the post. This is to make it easier for you to find those products. The links are to Amazon.

Ways to use the Consonant Blends Ladders

One way that I set up the ladders for a center is to give them just one ladder and several lacing letters. You can have them make sets of words or have them take one letter at a time through the ladder.

If you have laminated the ladder you can have them use dry eraser markers on the ladder to write the words. I like to use the small blends wall cards to help with the words.

If you want to work on short vowel words with the blends you can use the blends bookmarks that has short vowel and short spelled words.
