Digital CVC Word Sorting Activity
This CVC word sorting digital activity is a hit for young readers in kindergarten and first grade! This is a great option for helping students read without having access to supplies such as recording sheets and pocket charts. This activity instead uses digital picture cards and digital letter tiles.
Students will gain a lot of exposure to CVC words and word families while using this activity. They’ll also grow their vocabulary, learn about spelling patterns, and practice working with words that have different medial vowel sounds. To top it all off, they’ll become more familiar with using digital tools for learning and will gain fine motor skills as they drag and drop the objects on the screen, working on one-to-one correspondence.
This phonics activity will help you save time as a teacher because it’s all ready to go, you just have to assign it to your students!

Sorting CVC Words
This resource includes 18 slides of short vowel CVC word sorting mats. Since each medial vowel sound is represented in this activity, it makes differentiation simple. This activity is great for literacy centers or guided reading groups. You can assign different groups of students different slides depending on the short vowel sound they need to work on.
You can also differentiate this activity by assigning fewer slides or more slides, working your students up to completing all of the slides.
To use this activity, students will look at the CVC word family being represented on the slide. They’ll look at the 5 picture cards and determine the sounds in the words. They’ll drag and drop the 3 pictures that belong in the word family into the boxes on the slide.
To extend this activity for advanced learners, you can have them write each CVC word that they build on word cards. They will then have a stack of CVC words to practice with after the activity. This option would also bring in a handwriting element to the learning.
This activity has simple instructions, so students will be successful practicing with it either at school or at home.
I hope your students enjoy this activity with CVC words! They’re going to be well on their way to reading fluently and confidently this year.
