Do you have kids out there who find it difficult to add their ‘s’ sound to the start of their words to make S-Blends? I have made some free S-Blend worksheets that aim to target this very problem!
“S+Word = S Blend” type equation.
I usually cover the S-Blend word on the right and ask my kids to join their ‘s’ or ‘snake’ sound with the picture. The aim is to join the S+Word together to make a new word! When the child says the S-Blend word, I reveal the picture to show them the new word that they made! My younger kids get quite excited at all the new words that they are making!
I might then ask them to repeat the new S-Blend word that they made, and if they forget to use their ‘s’ sound at the start, I have a visual to refer back to. I would say “Nail? This picture is a ssssssnail. Let’s go back and add our ‘s’ sound and try to say sssssnail again”.
