How to practice blending sounds to read words
For this, you will need flashcards with the different sounds written on them, eg. m a n
You model making the word by saying the different sounds (phonemes) and putting the letters in the right order. You then ask the child to make the word. This can be repeated a few times to make sure your child is secure in reading that word.
You can also do this with more sounds/using digraphs eg. f - i - sh or r - ai - n - b - ow
