Flower CVC Word Building Cards
These spring CVC word building cards are so simple to use and have so many benefits for your kindergarten or first-grade students.
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!
CVC words are simple words that follow a consonant vowel consonant word pattern. They all feature a short vowel sound which makes them perfect for students who are just beginning to learn to decode words.
Students will identify the picture that is inside the flower. Then they will use letter manipulatives to spell that word by placing one letter in each box on the card.
There are 20 word cards included in this free CVC word activity.
Prep is a Breeze!
These CVC word-building mats are quick and easy to get ready for your students. All you have to do is print, laminate and cut apart! Instead of laminating, you can also slide whole pages into write and wipe pockets and students can build all four words before moving on to another page.
For easy storage, place the CVC word-building mats in a large baggie, file folder, or storage tray for easy grab-and-go access.

Using the CVC Word Cards
Students will look at the pictures on the word card. Then, they will say the name of the photographic image. Next, they will isolate the sounds in the word to find the beginning, middle and ending sound.
Then they will use the letter tiles to build the CVC word by placing the beginning letter in the first box, the middle letter in the second box and the final letter in the third box.
Finally, they will blend the letters together to read the word they built and make sure it matches the picture on the card. They will repeat this process for each picture.
