A blend is when two or more consonant letters come together, but you can still hear each letter sound separate. For example, “bl” in “block” or “fl” in “flag” are both blends.
A digraph is when two letters come together to make one new sound. For example, “sh” in “sheep” or “ch” in “chat” are both digraphs.
The worksheet that your child has is asking them to look at a picture and then find a word in the row underneath that starts with the same sound as the picture.
For example, if there is a picture of a frog at the beginning of the row, your child would look for a word that starts with the “f” sound, such as “frog” or “fun.” Then they would underline that word.
This is a fun way to practice recognizing and using blends and digraphs in words. By doing this, your child will be able to better identify the sounds in words, which will help them become stronger readers and writers.
