Blending is about sounding out the individual sounds (called phonemes) in a word and then putting those sounds together quickly and smoothly to read them as a word.
Decodables show purposeful, repeated practice with certain types of words to ensure your child can learn the many sound-spelling correspondences required to break down the words they’ll find in different content areas, in school and beyond!
