Blending is the primary decoding strategy that must be modeled and applied frequently to build word fluency. Research shows that students who are learning to read need explicit phonics skills instruction and plenty of practice blending words in isolation and in context to achieve the greatest gains.

    This seriously changed my foster sons reading trajectory. I’m not a teacher but was desperate to try anything to catch him up. He’s in second grade and tested at kindergarten level again in January. He has and interventionist plus 4 hours of after school tutoring a week in addition to his standard reading and homework. It was just not clicking for him. I found Mrs Winters bliss on Pinterest and I am so glad I did. We’re only 5 pages into the packet and he’s already have several aha moments! These are giving him confidence and that has helped him so much. I can wait to see how his scores improve by the end of the school year!

    I tutor second, fourth, and fifth grade students who struggle with reading. These are kids that have major learning gaps due primarily to COVID. They missed out on foundational reading skills, mainly decoding and blending. With just a week before Christmas vacation, I decided to take a leap of faith and purchase this resource from Christina. I’ve used the worksheets only twice, but I’m excited because my students are excited about using this resource. They were engaged, and I believe I will see more progress when we return from our Christmas break. Thank you so much Christina for your invaluable advice and dedication to our struggling readers.
