The 'Cl' 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 'Cl' set of words on individual cards. Underline the blend in every word. Explain your child about 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 for the 'Cl' blend:-

Clad, Claim, Classy.


Cling, Climb, Climate, Cliff.

Cloud, Clown, Closet, Clothes, Cloak, Clock.


Reading for the 'Cl' blend.

Clingy, the Cloud.

Clingy, the little cloud, loved to climb up high.
Clingy, the cloud loved to clown in the sky.

Clingy, the cloud had clothes in his closet,
His clothes gave us clues on our doorstep.

When clad in a grey cloak, he made rains,
But when clad in white, he made a classy sight.

Clingy, the cloud claimed to clear our days,
Clingy, the cloud, changed the climate his ways.

Clingy, the cloud, followed no clocks,
Clingy, the cloud, stood tall over cliffs and rocks.

Clingy, the little cloud, loved to up climb high.
Clingy, the cloud loved to clown in the sky.

Take care.
