|Many words have consonant blends - consonants that are used together to make a "blended" sound when they are pronounced. Some of the consonant blends are "s blends", i.e., sounds with 's' and another consonant in them.|
Examples: school, slow, etc.
Directions: Use the context clues to find the words. Hint: All the words have 's blend' sounds (sc, sk, sl, sm, sn, sp, st, sw, scr, and str). Use the completed words in sentences. As a homework, read a book and find as many "s blend" words as you can.
