Are your students ready to blend? Or do your students need more practice mastering each letter’s basic sounds? This FREEBIE will help you find out! In order to be a successful reader, your students need to have mastered the “basic code” or most common sounds that are represented by individual letters. Successfully reading CVC words (real and nonsense ones) is a good indicator of readiness to read adjacent consonant sounds and blended sound pictures (digraphs).
This FREEBIE includes two CVC Real vs. Nonsense Cut and Sort activities and a sample worksheet (The Sound Picture ‘ck’) from the Ultimate Blends Bundle.
The The Ultimate Blends Bundle is LOADED with consonant blends practice! Best of all, the The Ultimate Blends Bundle is designed to help your new, or struggling reader, become an AWESOME reader! Check out the preview included in this download!
To complete the Sound Picture sheet in this download: Have your students read the first section aloud (they should touch each sound picture with a dot marker, or their finger as they say its sound), as you listen and correct any mistakes. Next, they should find and write the eight ‘ck’ words in the clock picture—putting a box around each ‘ck’. Finally, they will color the words with the ‘ck’ digraph. Be sure they notice that some words have a ‘c’ or ‘k’ that is not used as a digraph. These words should not be colored—they should only color the ones with the target digraph.
Thank you for downloading this FREEBIE! Please don’t hesitate to e-mail me if you have any questions!

Before becoming a homeschooling mom, I received my Master of Arts in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Florida. After graduating, I had a career as a base planner for the United States Air Force. While working at the USAF Academy, I met my pilot-husband and began travelling the US and growing our family. Since 2005, I have homeschooled our seven children in South Carolina, Washington, New Jersey, Illinois, and now, Alaska! I love being a part of my children's education. We have four boys, three girls and lots of learning styles. Every year brings new learning adventures and challenges--and I look forward to sharing them with you.
