Where am I in the Reading Universe Taxonomy?
Use this decodable text to give students practice reading closed-syllable words with ending blends '-nt', '-sk', '-st', '-lp', '-mp', '-ft', and '-xt', like in tent, help, and jump. Skilled readers will learn to recognize ending blends as two consecutive letters that follow a vowel. Although the two letters in the blend represent their own sounds, the reader will blend and read the sounds as one unit. For example, the ending blend '-nt' in the word tent represents the sounds of both 'n' and 't', but we blend the letter sounds together.
This free printable resource for teachers is designed to help students build fluency in reading closed-syllable words with ending blends.
