blends and digraphs flashcards

blends and digraphs flashcards

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.
