Beginning Consonant Blends and Digraphs: Charts and Posters

Learning blends and digraphs is an important part of developing English reading skills. Teachers should pay a lot of attention to these frequently occurring letter patterns as the ability to quickly recognize them is the key factor to reading fluency. When working with struggling readers or kids in the early stages of learning to read in English, a teacher needs to spend many hours with them practicing reading relevant words and pronouncing blends and digraphs sounds. Such monotonous activities may get boring for children pretty quickly. That is why I do my best to use bright visuals and picture-based worksheets to get young students’ attention and maintain their interest as long as possible. And I’d like to share some printable charts and posters I have designed to make my lessons dedicated to consonant blends and digraphs more visually appealing to kids.



I’m a big advocate of visual aids for young students learning foreign languages. I design a lot of own printable visuals for my English classes. I have recently designed a number of bright picture-based charts, posters and a few worksheets for my lessons dedicated to beginning consonant blends and digraphs. In this post I’d like to publish the charts and the posters. I’ll share the worksheets in one of the upcoming blog posts. I hope my fellow EFL and ESL teachers will find these resources useful too.

I have designed a two-part poster with two page size options for printing (two A3 format pages and four A4 format pages to be glued together to form two A3 size posters). You can preview the posters in A3 page size HERE.
