We have been working hard on hearing all the sounds on blends. I kept tling them it was like chocolate/vanilla swirl ice cream. When you say a blend you can hear both sounds they are just swirled together. The same thing happens with the ice cream. You can see both flavors but they are blended (swirled) together.
We brainstormed some blends and words that contained those blends. Then we made a flip book.
