Long “A” CVCe Word Building
This interactive activity will give your students lots of practice with building CVCe words. And we all know that students can use a lot of practice in this area.
In this particular version of the activity, students will work on long “a” vowel sounds. Students will build words with long “a” like the words “rake,” “tape” and “wave.”
They will interact with the slides by dragging the virtual letter magnets over to the boxes and building the words illustrated on the slides.
This gives them lots of practice with reading and spelling CVCe words.
Teaching Students about the Silent E
When an “e” is placed at the end of a word, it makes the first vowel say its name.
Sometimes this is referred to as a “silent e,” “magic e” or “sneaky e.”
While students are doing this activity they will get lots of practice with adding an “e” to the end of words and creating long vowel sounds!
