Bewildering blends (160 out of 365) #blogaday

“Glowstick”

“Playground”

“Globe”

“Sticker”

These were some of the words I received when teaching a lesson today on blends. I was expecting “star,” “glass,” “place” – so was amazed at the Kindergarteners for coming up with such distinct words! It was a private school setting, which meant the environment they are brought up in is much more well-off. BUT STILL, they are 4 and 5 years old 😮

Better than simply blends (89 out of 365) #blogaday

​I found a fun way to teach blends with pictures on Pinterest. An image or saying works very well when it comes to remembering sounds. My current CT and school has a song to the tune of “I’m a little teapot” that the students sing about th, wh, ow, sh, and ch. The kids do the noises even on their own! These cards reminded me of that because there is an image that will help the students focus on the letter blends.
