Blending is taught by moving a Short Vowel sound and a Consonant sound closer and closer together so that your child learns to say the sounds closer and closer together.
Blending sounds is a learning process. The first step of blending is when your child states the correct two sounds for the letter characters that are being blended. For example the word, “at” will often first be read as “ah” “tah.” With practice and over time your child will learn to further blend the sounds to correctly say “at.”
To practice blending the Short Vowel sounds with Consonants use the 2 Letter Short Vowel Blends Flashcards (2 Letter Short Vowel Blends Flashcards)
