The 'Pr' 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 'Pr' blend.

Practice, praise, prance, pray.

Prepare, present, press, pretty.

Price, pride, prince, print, prize.

Probe, prod, proof, prop, proud, prowl.


Write the blend 'pr' 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.

Story for the 'pr' blend.

Penny, pretty princess.

Penny, the princess, had a lot of pride.
Penny the princess, had no petty sides.

Penny the princess, loves to get a prize,
Penny the princess, loves to give a surprise.

Penny the princess, prances all the time,
Penny the princess, pranks a while.

Penny the princess, did not like to probe or pry,
Penny the princess, was prune and wise.

Penny, the princess, is very pretty,
She is a proud precious beauty.

Take care.
