Word Smoothies





Picture yourself making your favorite smoothie. Of course, you'll need


your fruits, other ingredients, and a blender. Now let's make a smoothie for


your child. In this case, the blender is a book. Now in that book, you have


your fruits and other ingredients which are the words. When your


child/student begins reading, he/she is going to come across some unknown


words. The child will be able to figure out those words by blending.

Blending is an excellent skill that helps with reading. It pushes letter


sounds together to create a word. Most of the time, students find blending to


be very difficult. One way to correct this problem is by making the


child/student aware of patterns such as word families and diagraphs. Below


are some charts for word families and digraphs that will help your


child/student.
