Some beginning readers find blending extremely difficult. Too often, by the time they have sounded through the letters, they have forgotten the initial phoneme and need to start again on the same word. Very frustrating for the student! Some decodable series move faster than these students can manage though two (in), to three (pin), to four (spin) and five phoneme words (spins). For these students a slower approach allowing lots of repetition and mastery is needed. I also use onset-rime for such students where the rime and patterning boosts success.
