What is a consonant blend?
A consonant blend is when two or more consonants are blended together.
Blends can occur at the end of words as in the word fast. Each sound may be heard in the blend 'st'.
We say each consonant quickly, so their sounds blend together.
The most common final consonant blends include:
–st, –sk, –sp, –nd, –nt, –nk, –mp, –rd, –ld, –lp, –rk, –lt, –lf, –pt, –ft, and –ct.

ju + mp = jump
