The 'Sc' blend

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

Write the blend 'sc' 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.

Words with 'sc' blend:

Scaffold, Scale, Scalp, Scan, Scar, Scarecrow, Scarlet, Scarf

Scold, Scoop, Scorn, Scope, Scorpion

Scuff, Scuffle, Sculpture, Scurry

Story for the 'sc' blend:

Scooty, the scarecrow.

Scooty the scarecrow, stood on a scale,
Scooty, the scarecrow, scanned pig tails.

Scooty, the scarecrow, wore a scarlet scarf,
Scooty, the scarecrow, scolded the scorpion hard.

Scooty, the scarecrow, sculpted small sculptures,
Scooty, the scarecrow, scribbled on scooters.

Scooty, the scarecrow, scratched with screwdrivers,
Scooty, the scarecrow, scuffled with pliers.

Scooty, the scarecrow, scared the boy scouts,
Scooty, the scarecrow, loved scary hideouts.

Scooty is the scariest scarecrow ever!

Take care.
