Words with blends and digraphs are quite tricky for kids.
Words like rash, much, bath, whip etc. are words with digraphs.
Words such as blog, crab, swim, twins etc. are words with consonant blends.
Words like blush, brunch, cloth, whisk etc. are words with both.
But digraphs and blends can be quite confusing between themselves.
In this post, I will be sharing 68 flashcards with pictures to understand and practice these sounds.
You will find six l-blend word flashcards with pictures for ‘bl cl fl gl pl sl’ sound.
Next is the r-blend word flashcards for ‘br cr dr fr gr pr tr’ sounds.

I have covered 7 trigraphs in this set of flashcards. ‘spr str scr spl thr squ shr’
Eg. spring, strong, scrub, split, squid, thrash, shred, etc.
I have also included sounds like kn and wr in this set. In the kn words, the k is silent, and in the wr words, the w is silent. I have included –ck words and double consonant ff ll ss zz words as well.
The ending blends that I have included in this set are ‘nk nt nd lk lf lp ld lt sm st sp mb mp ft’
