What is a consonant blends?

Consonant blends are words that have two consonants at the start that each say their own sound. So examples are bl, br, cl and cr. These are just some of the beginning consonant blend examples.

The puzzles are all consonant blends.

Each of the puzzles has a picture and the matching word below. Each of the letters is its own puzzle piece.

I recommend laminating the blend puzzles to help them last longer.

You can see an example of the word blimp. It has b, l, i, m, p for each puzzle piece.

Ways to use the Blend Puzzles

If you are using the blends puzzles as a center I like to give them one word at a time. I start with all the pieces mixed up.

Then once they have the puzzles put together have them tell you the beginning blend and the word. You can even have them sound it out depending on the word.

You could also use the writing paper to record the puzzle they made.

Another way to use the blend puzzles is to have them make the word and then find the matching letters for it! I like to use the lacing letters for this.

You can also change this up how you do it. You can cut the letters off at the bottom and keep the picture together and then use the letters to spell the word.
