3 Letter Blend Words | Free Printable

3 Letter Blend Words might be challenging to understand, so I’ve created some enjoyable activities. This is done as children start to learn the spelling pattern. Words with three consonants close to each other are referred to as “three-letter blends.”

Learning these terms can help students learn the pronunciation because they have similar sounds in all the words they are in. Children who are in kindergarten, grade 1, or grade 2 must practice 3 Letter Blend Words like they would any other phonic sound to learn the sound and identify the letters that compose it.

What Are Blend Words? 

A word blend is created by combining two different words with dissimilar meanings to create a new word. These terms are frequently made up to describe a new phenomenon or creation that combines the characteristics of two different things.

Blend Words Types

Word blending can be done in a variety of ways. One strategy is to create a new term by combining parts of two other words.

The smallest units of meaning in a language, morphemes, are these word fragments. For instance, the word “brunch” combines the words “breakfast” and “lunch.” Another way to make words blend is to combine a full word with a part of another word (called a splinter).  Another way to create word blends is to overlap or combine phonemes, which are the components of two words that have a similar sound.

“Spanglish,” a colloquial blending of spoken English and Spanish, is an illustration of an overlapped word combination. Blends can also be created by leaving out phonemes.

Some Basic Examples

  • brunch = breakfast + lunch.
  • biopic = biography + picture.
  • glimmer = gleam + shimmer.
  • camcorder = camera + recorder.
  • motel = motor + hotel.
  • sitcom = situation + comedy.
  • clash = clap + crash.
  • smash = smack + mash.

Use of Blend Words

  • By combining several sounds, or phonemes, to create words, blending is a technique used to help kids in kindergarten learn to read.
  • Learning how to sound out words by blending sounds will help students in the 1st or 2nd grade comprehend long and challenging words when they are reading.
