Table of Contents

What Are R-Blends?

R blends are consonant blends (or consonant clusters) that include the letter R as the second letter. R blends include:

👌 R-Blend examples: Words like br at, cr itter, dr ink, fr og, gr ape, pr ize, and tr ip include beginning r-blends.

Why Teach R-Blends?

R-blend words are more tricky consonant blends because the position of the letter r in the word.

The /r/ sound is usually one of the later developing sounds in speech development, making these blends especially difficult for kids with speech delays.

Of all the beginning r-blends, dr and tr are the most difficult. Kids typically use invented spelling when writing words with these beginning blends.

So they required explicit instruction and lots of repeated practice using quality resources like our worksheets below.

Explicitly teaching r-blends will help students read many new words! We group the br, cr, dr, fr, gr, pr, and tr toegther because it uses a common feature (the letter r) to teach 7 new concepts.

As Anna Gillingham once said, “Move as quickly as you can, but as slowly as you must.”

Teaching blends in groups focused on similar features, like l-blends , s-blends, or r-blends, will help you move quickly and help students be successful.

Beginning Blend DR

The blend dr sounds a lot like the sound /jr/, like in the word dr ip.

Teachers need to be clear and explicitly teach that when kids hear a /jr/ at the beginning of the word, they should never write the letters jr .

This is not a consonant blend in English, and they will never see the letters jr at the beginning of a word. Instead, when kids hear /jr/ in a word, they need to write dr .

Beginning Blend TR

The blend tr sounds a lot like the digraph /ch/ + /r/ like in the word tr ain.

Again, students need to be taught that when they hear the /ch/+ /r/ sound at the beginning of words, they should write the letters tr , not chr .

A completed r-blend worksheet with a student pointing and reading each r-blend word.

Using the Worksheets

These five worksheets are excellent resources to use when introducing and reinforcing r-blends in words.

All words included on the worksheets follow a typical structured literacy scope and sequence and include only after letters a-z , short vowels, and common digraphs .

💯 This means that kids can be successful reading every single word while learning how to read and spell words with r-blends!

Why We Love It

All five worksheets focus on reading and spelling words with R-blends. They all provide intentional and targeted practice for learning r-blend words.

Tips and More Resources

There are TONS of consonant blends in the English language. So if you are focused on teaching blends to your students, use these other great resources.

Age Group: These worksheets are designed for first grade students, but can be used with older kids still struggling with beginning blends.

Is “I measure the distance in terms of multiple whales” an example of hyperbole?

It depends on whether that speaker is referencing a distance that is literally that great.

Can you please give me an example of a hyperbole for either heavy loads or hard work about e-waste and e-waste scraps.

Mr. Morton, will you please tell me if this sentence is a metaphor or a personification? 1. Truly he has a heart of gold.

That is a metaphor.

To know me is to love me.

It was the worst disaster ever. Probably not Hyperbole.

But this is: I was the worst disaster for all time. At least I think it is.

Some were not hyperbole examples like “I’d rather French kiss a rattlesnake than miss a gym period”, and “The sight of them kissing is so gross that it makes me want to puke”, I am so good at finding mistakes.

charlie anderton

interesting, really, REALY interesting.

Is my mother is always working a hyperbole?

Yes, because that exaggerates how often she works. Obviously, she must sleep sometimes as well as do other things.

Thank You 🙂 It helps me a lot

Yes, I believe they share the same root in “hyper.”

Jayden Johnson

I notice an increase in my leanings towards hyperbole when I began facebook messenger a year ago. Seems as if I am writing to myself when writing to a person that I have not seen for years…careless writing…Now I will pay more attention…

In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with hyperbole. In fact, it can be used to great effect. Perhaps overusing it is problematic…

Grammar Help - What is a Simple, Compound and Complex Sentence?

Grammar for children - using different types of sentences.

A great writer uses different types of sentences to keep the reader interested, change the pace and tone of their writing. Sentences can be spilt into three types - simple, compound and complex. For example: When you read a story, the writer will have used different types of sentences to keep your interest.  The type of sentence used can affect the pace and mood of the story.

Teaching Children About Different Types of Sentences at Primary School

When children first start writing they will group words together to create a phrase or simple sentence (clause). As children move into Year 1 or Year 2, they will start to write simple and compound sentences. From Year 2 onwards, they will be encouraged to use simple, compound and complex sentences in their writing.  Children should be encouraged to use the different sentence types in both fiction and non-fiction writing.  

Helping Children Improve Their Writing

Children need to be reminded to use compound and complex sentences regularly, given the choice, most will only use simple sentences.  In order for children to develop their writing, they need to know why, how and when the different sentence types could be used.  One way of doing this is by getting children into the habit of reading through their finished work, encouraging and showing them how they could improve it by adding conjunctions, such as 'however', 'although', 'furthermore', 'until', etc. 

Take a look at our TMKed  Grammar Packs  which you can purchase from the shop. Created to help children improve their grammar and sentence writing.  

Explanation of a phrase, clause, simple sentence, compound sentence and complex sentence?

Here are some definitions and examples explaining each sentence type.

What is a Phrase?

A group of words, e.g a flower.

What is a Clause?

Adds a bit more detail, contains a subject and a verb.  When you read a clause, it makes sense on its own, as well as being part  of a sentence. E.g. the flower grew

What is a Simple Sentence?

If you use a capital letter and full stop with a clause it becomes a simple sentence. E.g. The flower grew.

What is a Compound Sentence? 

Joins 2 simple sentences, both sentences make sense when you read them on their own. The sentences can be joined using the word 'and, 'but', 'so', 'for','because'.  E.g. I went to the park and I played on the slide.         Maya played on the slide, so Amy went on a swing.

What is a Complex Sentence?

Has a main clause that makes sense on its own and a sub-ordinate clause, that doesn't make sense on its own. The sub-ordinate clause adds more detail (linked) to the main clause and can be at the beginning, middle or end of the sentence. E.g Having worked all day, Maya went to the park to play on the slide.        The bookcase, which was made of wood, burnt quickly in the fire.        I went shopping yesterday, despite it raining heavily.

Complex sentences can:

When is a phrase used?

A phrase can be used when labeling things such as pictures, diagrams, tables etc.

When is a simple sentence used?

A simple sentence can be used to put across one idea. Simple sentences can be used in stories when you want to create pace and action. 

When is compound / complex sentence used?

A complex sentence can be used when you want to add detail.  In a story they can be used to create atmosphere and build pictures or images of the setting, characters etc.

Hyperbole is a figure of speech you use when you want to exaggerate what you mean or emphasize a point. It comes from the Greek word to mean “excess” and is often used to make something sound much bigger, better, funnier, or more dramatic than it actually is. Hyperbole is a useful tool in  language .

In American and British English, hyperbole is pronounced ‘HI-PUR-BOW-LEE’ .

Here are some examples of hyperbole

Let’s look specifically at the first example. Here, the speaker doesn’t literally mean that there’s enough food on the table to feed the hundreds of people in an army. Instead, the speaker is using hyperbole to exaggerate the amount of food that they have and that it is more than enough to feed the number of people present.

Hyperbole can also be used to make something sound much worse than it actually is. For example: “My shoes are killing me!” – the speaker doesn’t literally mean that the shoes are attacking the wearer and will kill them, but it is using hyperbole to be dramatic and emphasize their opinion that their shoes are causing them a lot of discomfort or pain.

Examples of Hyperbole in Everyday Speech

Take a look at the following list of hyperbolic phrases. How many of them have you heard or used before?

How to use Hyperbole (so it’s not a total disaster)

There are a few things to keep in mind when using hyperbole. Firstly, you want to figure out whether you’re wanting to exaggerate a feeling or the volume and quantity of something. For example, I was so excited I was going to explode! demonstrates that the person was extremely excited for something. Whereas,  I had a mountain of homework to do describes the large volume of assignments that the person needed to complete.

The next step is to ensure that your choice of hyperbole makes sense and sounds natural. It would be awkward to say our homework was the size of the Eiffel Tower .  Yes, the Eiffel Tower is tall, but it’s better suited to describing length and height rather than volume.

Examples of Hyperbole in Poetry and Literature

Hyperbole is often used in poems and books because it helps to emphasize part of the story and evoke a response from the reader. Hyperbole can help the writer to get their point across so that you understand the emotion, seriousness or humor of the situation.

For example, in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” he writes:

“Will all great Neptune’s ocean wash this blood

Clean from my hand? No.”

In this example, Macbeth is using hyperbole to say that not even an entire ocean could wash his hands clean. Macbeth is using hyperbole to exaggerate the situation.

In her book ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’, the author Harper Lee writes:

“A day was twenty-four hours long but seemed longer. There was no hurry, for there was nowhere to go, nothing to buy and no money to buy it with, nothing to see outside the boundaries of Maycomb County.”

In this example, the author is using hyperbole to emphasize how slow and boring the town is. The hyperbolic phrases in this sentence help the reader to understand the situation as, without them, the sentence doesn’t appear as emotive. Have a go at re-writing Harper Lee’s sentence above without the hyperbole and see how it sounds!

The following poem by Shel Silverstein, titled “Rain”, shows some great examples of hyperbole. Can you identify them?

I opened my eyes

And looked up at the rain,

And it dripped in my head

And flowed into my brain,

And all that I hear as I lie in my bed

Is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.

I step very softly,

I walk very slow,

I can’t do a handstand–

I might overflow,

So pardon the wild crazy thing I just said–

I’m just not the same since there’s rain in my head.

How To Use Handwriting Worksheets

Use this handwriting worksheet page to create your own customized handwriting practice worksheets. You can create handwriting worksheets in print/manuscript or in cursive.

Whether you are creating customized handwriting worksheet for a child who is learning letter formation, how to write their name, practicing spelling words, writing sentences, or even copying paragraphs, this handwriting worksheet page allows you to create exactly what you want!

First select if you want your writing worksheet in print/manuscript or cursive, then select dots or outlines. Dot worksheets have simple tracing dots and outlines are more of a fill-in type worksheet. The outline option is for print/manuscript worksheets only and does not yet work with cursive writing worksheets, but our developers are working on it for the future! Allowing students to use fun writing tools is a great way to create more student engagement on handwriting worksheets. At the bottom of the page are links for some fun resources that I’ve used with my students.

If you want a simple letter writing worksheet for letter formation or word writing worksheet for children who are learning to write their names like the first example above, select “same content on each line” in the handwriting worksheet generator. If you want to be able to create handwriting worksheets with sentences or paragraphs or even just practice different letters or words on each line like the cursive handwriting worksheet example below, select “different content on each line” on the handwriting worksheet generator.

You have the option to create handwriting worksheets with varying letter sizes. Letter size options are available from extra small to extra large. If you are creating handwriting worksheets for younger children or those who are struggling with fine motor skills, make the font bigger. As their fine motor skills develop, you can make the text smaller and smaller.

Both of the examples below have beginning handwriting lines, which is what I always used with my students. We also included an option for single line handwriting worksheets for older children. This can be useful for students who are writing or copying paragraphs and/or sentences in a paragraph editing activity for example.

Please share your unique, customized handwriting worksheets and how you are using them with us on social media by using any of the links at the bottom of the page, or email [email protected].
