The SL Blend....Let's Slide!

We have been working on blends during our phonemic awareness time. When we say a word that has a blend we always make a sliding motion with our hand as if our hand was sliding down a slide. I always tell my students the a blend is two or three letters that slide together. I created an anchor chart for my students to refer to. When we talk about a new blend we will create a new chart and list all the words that have the blend.

The following activity was created for my students to put into their poem folder. I had my students highlight the SL blends. You can also copy it in color and the SL blends are already marked!

How do you teach blends in your classroom?
