Building CVC Words
Your students are going to have a winter-themed blast using this digital CVC word resource as they practice building CVC words using their letter names and sounds skills. There are 17 different slides of pictures for your students to work with, giving them ample opportunities to learn with different short vowel sounds.
To use this activity, students will look at the picture on the striped pole beside the evergreen tree. Then, they will decide what the picture is and find the correct evergreen letter trees to put in order to build the word. After they drag and drop the trees in the correct order, they will decode the CVC word.
The students will repeat this on each slide until all of them are complete. This activity allows for easy differentiation in order to meet the needs of all students. Some students may need to start with fewer slides or work on specific short vowel sounds. Other students may be ready to work on all short vowel sounds and use all 17 slides. You can easily adjust this by deleting or reordering slides.
To make planning for small groups a breeze, you can assign small groups of students a certain set of slides. As they gain confidence with their skills, you can assign more until they complete them all in a mixed order.
To offer a challenge for students, you can have them write the CVC word on a recording sheet, in a sentence, or write other words that belong in the same word family. There are so many ways to extend this activity with just a simple pencil and paper.
This activity is perfect for students in kindergarten and first grade. It could even be used as a second grade intervention activity.
