What is sound blending?


Sound-blending is the ability to build words from individual sounds by blending the sounds together in sequence. This is learning that can be consolidated at home with parental support. Learning to sound-blend can take some time to master, so don’t worry if your child does not pick it up straight away. Carry on teaching your child the next set of Speed Sounds shared with you by their teacher. When that group is learnt in and out of order and at speed, practise sound-blending with those sounds and sounds previously learnt. Continue until your child is blending with all of the Set 1, 2 and 3 sounds.
