Digital Flower CVC Word Building Activity
Spring literacy lessons have a large focus on practicing phonics skills and working to master making CVC words and sounding them out. Your students need ample opportunities to practice that will give them fun and effective ways to learn. This digital flower CVC word building activity is a great way to engage your learners and help them decode and build CVC words.
With this digital flower word building activity, students will work with CVC words using each short vowel sound, making it a well-rounded activity and a perfect spiral review activity at the end of the year.
If you don’t have access to word work printables or manipulatives, this activity is a great option. Plus, it saves on colored ink and black and white ink, too! You can incorporate it into your literacy stations whether you’re in the classroom or learning at home. This activity is compatible with Google Slides and Seesaw, making it easy for teachers to assign to their students using a variety of online learning platforms.
Students will use their prior knowledge and letter and sound skills to sound out the words on the flower slides that match the picture. As they build the word on the screen, they’ll use their decoding skills and word family knowledge to spell the CVC word correctly.

Mastering CVC Words
As your learners master making CVC words with these 18 flower CVC word building slides, they’ll gain a ton of confidence in their skills. Each slide has a kid-friendly picture, making this activity perfect for kindergarten and first grade students.
This digital phonics activity has easy-to-follow instructions. Your students will be able to complete this activity independently with success. To play, students will begin by looking at the picture in the sky, identifying what the word is. Next, they’ll drag and drop the letters into the flowers to build the CVC word. As they build, they’ll practice decoding and blending the sounds in the word.
To make this activity more versatile, it’s easy to differentiate and use with students at all levels. If you need to delete or reorder slides to help make it less overwhelming or focus on a certain short vowel sound, you can do this with a few simple clicks. If you have kids learning at a higher level, simply keep all of the slides and mix them up so they work on all of the short vowel sounds in a mixed order.
To further challenge your higher level learners, give them an additional extension activity after they complete the slides. They could write each CVC word on a whiteboard, organize the words into word families, use each word in a sentence using sight words, or even write each word in alphabetical order. The options are endless!
This ease of differentiation allows you to use this activity with students at all levels in kindergarten and first grade. However, it would be perfect for preschool learners who are ready for a challenge and 2nd grade students who need more support.
