BASEBALL BLENDING

Lauren Parker


Rationale:

·       Blending is the ability skillful readers acquire which enables them to link known phonemes together to produce a working word. If a child understands the idea of blending, they will be able to read any word. If students get the right practice it will help them decide more quickly on the word. This lesson will use the Body-Coda method to blend because it is the easiest way to blend.
