CVC Word Building Activity for Google Classroom
This interactive CVC activity will make learning phonics skills an engaging, hands-on experience.
This file gives you a lot of flexibility because it includes all middle vowel sounds, so you can keep them all or delete others that you don’t want to use.
This makes it easy for you to reinforce specific vowel sounds or review them all. The option is yours.
Setting Up the Digital CVC Activity in Google Slides
Students can use Google Slides™ to do this activity.
The download includes a detailed guide with instructions and pictures on how to use the file with you students, but it is quite simple to do.
If you are a instructor or teacher, you will want to copy the Google slides assignment to your Google Drive and save it as a master copy.
If you are differentiating for a variety of levels, you will want to make a different master copy for each level or group of students.
After that, you will need to create an assignment for each student and attach Google Slides doc you want them to work on.
Once it has been uploaded, make sure that you click the dropdown next to the attachment and pick the the students you want to send that specific copy too.
If you are using the same mats with your whole class, make sure that you click the dropdown next to the attachment. Pick the “Make a copy for each student” option.
Using this CVC Activity
There are visual instructions for students to refer to before starting the activity.
Students will use the pictures to help them determine the words that will be built.
Then they will drag the letters on the right side over to build the word. They will isolate each sound in the word, move that letter over, and put it in the corresponding box.
This continues as they build each word on the mat.
Then they will move to the next mat you have assigned. This continues until they have built all of the CVC words on all of the mats.
