What is Blending?:         

Blending is the process of saying the individual sounds in a word and then running or stretching them together to make the word.  For instance, blending or sounding out /s – a – t/ and making sat.

We are blending letter sounds together in our phonics lesson to make words. This is an important reading technique that improves with practice. We will work on blending sounds together all year.
