A letter blend is a combination of two or more consonants, like "dr" in dragon and "tr" in tree. In this worksheet, students practice recognizing consonant sounds with R blends. After reviewing examples of letter blends, children practice what they've learned by coloring in pictures with the same beginning R blends. This teaches and reinforces children's ability to use and hear blends, and also helps to develop their phonological awareness. Designed for a first-grade curriculum, this resource lends well to a variety of reading and writing lessons.
