What is a CVC word?

But first, you may be wondering what a CVC word actually is.

Well, a CVC word is a word made up of 3 letters - a consonant, then a vowel, and then another consonant. CVC words follow simple phonics rules, so that each letter makes its sound.

Some examples of CVC words are: cat, net, dog, and bug.

When beginning to teach my students to read, I like to start by teaching them CVC words first.

If your students know the letter sounds very well, beginning reading instruction with CVC words is a great idea. CVC words are easy to sound out and help build confidence in beginning readers!

Pair that confidence with fun and engaging activities and your students will be well on their way to learning to read.
