When teaching my kindergarten classes to blend three-letter words, I found that many of the kids did not understand what I meant when I said, “blend the letters”.
So, I started to sing a song showing how to blend letters. I called it the “Show Me” song.
I found that, by singing two letters together and adding the third, the kids were able to understand the concept of blending letters. They quickly learned to use their blending skills to read not only three-letter words but soon they were reading sentences.
I hope you find this helpful!
