Letter of the Week Blend Cards


Download the Letter of the Week K4 Blend Cards

As part of my K4 add on’s I am having my daughter do some beginning reading. I posted these awhile back with different animals, but here they are with my Letter of the Week themes.


For each consonant we practice reading the blends with each vowel. We also add another consonant on the end to make small CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words using magnetic alphabet letters.


Hope you have fun with beginning reading skills!

    The link takes me to the original blends, (and not the letter of the week ones) too?!?

  9. These blend letters are fantastic! I'm a teacher that works with other home school families. I just printed out your blend ladders and plan on using them this morning with one of my students!

  10. These are perfect for our reading program in a little bit, thank you!

  11. Anonymous: Sorry it's fixed! Thanks :o)

  12. I love these ladders. And they couldn't have come at a better time – I was just about to look for some printables online when I found yours. Thanks a million πŸ™‚

  13. They look great! Can't wait to use them!

  14. I'm a fellow homeschooler & I really like your blog! You do a great job. I just followed you! :)~Erika

  15. Thank you sooo much!! πŸ™‚ I currently use the K4 Abeka curriculum at school and these are perfect for them! I have blend ladders already from Abeka, but I love yours with the LOTW pics!

      I currently teach at a private Christian school and use the Abeka K-4 curriculum. It is a new curriuclum for me, so these blend ladders will really help! I am going to use them at my Language Arts Center after gluing them on cardstock and laminating. Does anyone have any ideas for games using the blend ladders? I like the curriuculum, but it can be very repetitive!!

  16. thanks for your great homeschooling blog. very well done!the sleepy time gal

  17. These are so fun! My kids will like these ladders! THANK YOU for your blog – I use TONS of your resources and appreciate the hard work you put into them! God bless!

  18. Thank you so much.

  19. WoW!! You are awesome! Thank you so much! I am on my way to ordering your letter of the week program. Thank you!!!

  20. Wow! Thank you!

  21. I love these! Thank you!

    Erica,These are great! Thank you so much for sharing. I am curious why there is no k?

  23. Teresa: The C and K are on the same blend card because C goes with a,o,u and K goes with i, e

  24. Oh these would go perfect with people who are using Phonics Pathways!

  25. How wonderful! Did you make these? If so, could I possibly find out how you did them or ask you to do 3 other ones? I have shared your article online. What a blessing! Manipulative s for school are so pricey! It's nice to be able to save some money.

  26. I can't get this to download either. I don't think it is working anymore.

  27. I have tried downloading the blend ladders (I already have your letter of the week curriculum, which I LOVE!!!), but cannot access the blend ladders. It keeps giving me an error message. Is there another way to get these? Thanks!

  28. Hi Kim: What error are you getting? I checked the file and they seem to be working.

  29. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!These are great! Thank you for sharing them with us and saving me a little time and lots of money! πŸ™‚

  30. Amazing, thank you!! My 7 year old daughter is a bit behind in reading, and my 5 year old son is driving ahead quickly. These will totally work for both!
