PM Alphabet Blends

The

PM Alphabet Blends

are an extension of the

PM Alphabet

Starters

, teaching students the more complex skills of blending

consonants and recognising digraphs. There are opportunities

for oral practice on every page of the

PM Alphabet Blends

.

Hearing the sounds, saying the sounds, reading the sounds

and writing the sounds of blends and digraphs in

PM Alphabet

Blends

will help students learn both the phoneme (sound) and

visual appearance of each consonant blend and digraph.

The

PM Alphabet Blends

are designed to be used in

conjunction with the

PM Levelled Texts

, in which the same

blends and digraphs are found. When used collectively, a

meaningful context is created where young readers can make

associations that will be remembered.

When students can produce the right

onset, they have a flying start: they have

a word-recognition strategy that works!
