Consonant blends, particularly three-letter blends, are difficult for many students to discriminate and identify. Digraphs are single phonemes, yet they are challenging and are included.

In this product, students identify blends and digraphs at the beginning of words (onsets). There are two sort activities for each of the following onset categories: L-blends (bl, cl, fl, gl, pl, sl, spl); R-blends (br, cr, dr, fr, gr, pr, tr, scr, shr, spr, str, thr); and S-blends (sc, sk, sl, sm, sn, sp, st, sw, scr, spl, spr, squ, str). All blends and digraphs are covered in the sets.

Students must use vocabulary knowledge to name words that begin with the blend or digraph choices. In order to provide adequate examples, some challenging words have been included. Therefore, this may lead to acquisition of new vocabulary words.
