s-blend words – Read, match and paste

Today, we will be covering the last of the initial consonant blends, the s blends.

The s blend words include sc sk sn sm sp st and sw blends. I have also included the ‘tw’ blend in this pack. All the s blend words are short vowel words.

I start with consonant blends immediately after CVC words or three-letter words. We cover digraph sh, ch and th too during this period.

Blends are also called chunks or clusters.

Before attempting this set, please read the s-blend words with your child. You can find the free ‘s-blend read and colour’  here.

Let us discuss the picture sort set now.

Next of the s blends is the sm blend. In these worksheets, you can find words which you haven’t heard before. My aim is to introduce new words since children have a tendency to cram the words they see often. Reading new words will assure you that the child has understood the concept. Also, it adds to the vocabulary.

The s-blends can be a little challenging for the kids. Sometimes, kids do not catch the s in the words. spit is pronounced pit, spot is pronounced pot. In such cases, please practice the ‘s’ sound again. Stretch the sssssss which is the hissing sound of the snake. Do it regularly. sssssssss-pot,    ssssssss-pin..slowly, the child will get it. Then you can try saying sp at once.
