Then, we move on to r-blends, ‘br cr dr fr gr pr tr.’
And then we practice the s-blends, ‘sc sk st sm sn sp sw’
These 7 s-blends are by far the most challenging and confusing not only for children but also for adults. Mistakes in writing words with these blends are quite common. In my experience children typically record just one of the two blend sounds when spelling. For example, ‘scan’ is spelled san; sped is spelled sed; stock is spelled sock, etc. I try and stress on the consonant blend as much as possible when this happens.
