"Br" Consonant Blends
Transcript of "Br" Consonant Blends
Lindsey Fisher What is a Consonant Blend? A combination of two or more
consecutive consonants, each of which alters its sound slightly
in order to join with other letters. The consonant blend can be at either the beginning of a word or the end of a word. The combination of consecutive consonants are joined with at least
one vowel for consonants
at the beginning or end of the word. I wonder what a consonant blend is.. Student Do YOU know

Consonant blends are fun to do.
Read them all with me, won’t you?
Float and flutter in the sun.
Twist and twirl and have some fun.
Dribble and drive down the street.
Crawl and crouch on your own feet.
Swing and swim on the big lake.
Prance on in and bake a cake.
Try to fly up in the sky.
Fry some eggs and ask me why.
Consonant blends can really rock.
Practice them around the clock!
