Today’s Creative Activity is a phonics wordsearch using the Bl blend.
This activity is designed to provide consolidation of blend recognition and use. The blend featured in the wordsearch is ‘Bl’. Confidence in recognizing blends helps children to develop successful word attack skills and to write more fluently.
This activity is drawn from The Blends Book, which is aimed at children who already have confidence with single initial consonant phonemes.
Each consonant blend featured is accompanied by a creative activity and two fun reading activities designed both to consolidate blend recognition and use, and to extend children’s knowledge in a stimulating way.
- finding word meanings
- identifying blends
- word building
- cloze activities
- word families
