"Peek A Boo" Blends

post may contain affiliate links.
A few weeks ago T was introduced to blends in his All About Spelling curriculum.  It was perfect because his Explode the Code Book 2 is ALL ABOUT blends!  Needless to say, he is getting lots of practice seeing and reading CVCC and CCVC words.

And I must say, he is doing a great job!  There are still blends that he forgets to blend... like SW--.  He often forgets the /w/ sound; but with all the exposure he is getting, he will be reading them fluently soon enough.
For a little extra practice that is quick and easy, I made an activity called "Peek A Boo" Blends.  On white card stock I cut through 3 sides of a square shape to make a 'door' & I did this 3 times and then cut out a little box for an = sign.

Forgive my not so perfect door edges, I think the razor blade I used is a bit dull : /

Then laying another piece of paper behind the card stock, I wrote out the blends:
CC- V- C = or
C- V- CC =

Here are some pictures.. they can probably explain much better what I am trying to get at ; )

My sweet little reader!
