Consonant Clusters

Consonant Blends Phonics

Learn More >

Consonant clusters are two or three letters combined together without any vowels between them, and you hear the distinct sound of each letter.

Consonant clusters are also referred to as consonant blends. Practicing blends help children model blending skills. Children should learn to read adjacent letters smoothly without pauses between individual sounds.

Learners can write on laminated Mini Word Wall again and again as they encounter consonant clusters.

Mp|Nk|Ng|Nt Mini Word Walls (Pack of 4)

The Mini Word Wall sets use integrated learning that teaches word sound and visual patterns.   Ng and nk are consonant clusters with distinct sounds. But, ng and nk are sometimes included as digraphs by reading programs to teach young readers as one sound. This is done to minimize confusion because some children will spell pink /p/ /i/ /ng/ /k/ after they learn the ng sound. So, ng and nk get linked as ngk. However, children who are read to more often that encounter word play are more inclined to recognize word families like /ink/.

This four pack includes mp|nk|ng|nt word practice. They are final consonant clusters that are spelled at the end of a word. Children can practice these blends when they encounter words using them. $6.85
