The Blending Board App is a powerful educational tool for teachers and parents working with dyslexic learners or anyone else still learning the foundations of blending sounds (phonics) and the multisyllabic rules of English. In this App users will find an easy-to-use resource that allows them to create a deck of phonemes that can be substituted and manipulated to create various kinds of blending activities. The decks enable users to practice decoding simple words, and multisyllabic words, too.

Blending Board also offers a unique opportunity for creative flexibility by granting users design options when creating personalized decks that are visually appealing. The end product is a professional-looking, personalized deck of educational materials that users can integrate into instruction with one or many, and which can be used time and again.

An easy-to-use QR code system allows the personalized decks to be shared with anyone who has the app, so that the teacher's time can be focused on teaching, not navigating complicated technology.

Edit Current Decks

This app is almost perfect for my OG instruction, but I wish I could edit my current decks to add newly learned concepts. The developed sounds already provided are fantastic. As some reviewed, there are certain consonants and digraphs that should only be in the first or third column, but unchecking unwanted cards is great. I really appreciate that any card can be created. I have toyed with the idea of creating rote/red word cards because of this feature. Excellent app for managing multiple card decks!

Needs one more key feature

This is so great, but I still can’t use it with my students because of one key feature that’s missing. Maybe I’m missing it, but I dont see the ability to multi-select several groupings within each column. For example, in column 1, I want all consonants AND blends. Right now, it’s either/or option only. I can’t use the + ‘blank’ option b/c it is limited to only one add’l custom tile. An alternative is to have an option in each column, that includes ALL possibilities, where you can just de-select what the student hasn’t learned yet. If you add either of these options so the decks are a true reflection of paper OG cards, I would use it in professional tutoring. Right now, I would need to build multiple deck variations for one child. Keep up the great work!

Latest Version

I’ve recently found this useful app and am exploring its features. After watching the video (on the website, not through the app), my practice with features has led me to mostly happy results. The functionality in regard to ease and flexibility of creating personalized decks with beginning, middle, and ending sounds is great! I am not finding success with changing the theme color or background (pumpkins, eggs, etc.). When I click the paintbrush, the color options and screen settings appear, but I can only get the screen settings g (dark, light, auto) to change. I deleted and re-installed the app, but that didn’t change anything for me. Thank you in advance for your support.
