Phonetics can seem rather challenging and intimidating to some kids. Engaging them with fun activities to teach them important topics like consonant blends can go a long way in helping them understand better. As the name suggests, ‘Beginning Consonant Blends’ is a set of free, fun and printable reading activities that require kids to identify and use consonant blends. While these reading activities are an invaluable resource for teachers, they are also extremely useful for homeschooling parents who want to make learning more enjoyable for their little ones! Tip: Teach kids the difference between digraphs and blends to avoid any confusion.
