The 'Tr' blend

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

Trap, trace, track, train, trail, trash, tray

Treat, tread, tree, trek.

Trick, trim, trip.

Troop, trot, trout.

Trump, truck, true, trumpet, trunk, trust, truth, try.

Write the blend 'tr' 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 'tr' blend-

Tracy the truck.

Tracy, the truck loved running on the tracks,
Tracy, the truck, fell on the trash.

Tracy, the truck, took long trips,
Tracy, the truck, loved big tips.

Tracy, the truck, was trust worthy truck,
Tracy, the truck, had a big trunk.

Tracy the truck, loved to play tricks,
Tracy, the truck, banged with trees.

Tracy the truck, said the truth,
Tracy the truck, loved little troops.

Tracy, the truck, is my best toy truck!

Take care.
