Is it time to teach ending consonant blends to your kindergarten and first grade students?! Well, take a peek at this set of ending consonant blend activities made specifically for kindergarten and first grade students. It’s the perfect activity to use during your word work time, centers, small group, or independent work. Your students will love practicing their reading and writing skills as they learn about ending consonant blends.
The focus is on 26 double consonant beginning blends: SK, SP, ST, RD, RF, RK, RL, RM, RN, RP, RT, LD, LF, LK, LM, LP, LT, FT, SK, CT, PT, ND, NG, NK, NT, MP.
This no prep worksheet pack includes, 26 blend cards and a 8.5×11 blend poster that contains all 26 blends and a corresponding picture (in color and black and white).
It also includes a set of blend books. There is one book per beginning blend. Each book contains the same activities. There are 6 half-pages per mini-book to help reinforce reading, identifying, and writing words containing the specific blend. Those activities are…
– Cover page with ending blend and corresponding picture
– Fill-in-the-blend with three corresponding pictures (i.e. bli__)
– Highlight-a-word (find the words containing the blend)
– Spot-the-sillies (find the nonsense words mixed in among real words)
– Trace and draw the word (2 pages)
*PLEASE NOTE* In most cases, I tried to use words that involved basic spelling patterns that are most appropriate for kindergarten and before-Christmas first graders. I tried to avoid words that contained long vowels, diphthongs, digraphs, etc. However, in some cases I was limited by the English language and only had so many words to choose from, so some words may be a little more advanced…but offer a great reason to incorporate a teachable moment!!!! Right?!
