The 'Br' Blend

Consonant clusters or blends are two or three consonants that appear together in a word with each consonant retaining its sound when blended.

The 'Br' blend words:

Brace, Brad, Braid, Brain, Braise, Brake, Bran, Branch, Brand, Brass, Brat, Brave, Brawl, Bray.

Bread, Break, Breathe, Breeze, Brew.

Brick, Bride, Bridge, Bright, Brim, Bring, Brisk.

Broad, Broil, Broke, Bronze, Brood, Brook, Broom, Broth, Brother, Bought, Brown, Browse.

Bruise, Brush.

Write the blend 'br' set of words on individual cards. Underline the blend in every word. Explain your child that the set of two letters that needed to be spelt together or blended and help him in reading the first few words. Once he is comfortable reading individual words and recognizes the reading pattern, encourage him to read the story under your supervision.

Repeat this exercise daily for the entire week, till your child is comfortable with blending.

Story for the 'Br' blend :

Brace and Brad.

She is Brainy Brace,
He is Brother Brad.

Brace likes Bread,
Brad loves Broth.

Brace likes Branches,
Brad loves Brooks.

Brace plays with Brooms,
Brad plays with Bricks.

Brainy Brace is Bright,
Brother Brad is Brave.

But when Brace and Brad have a Brawl,
They need Brother Brown, to Bring them to a halt.

Take care.
