Long “I” CVCe Word Building Activity
Ditch the flashcards and make learning CVCe words a fun, interactive experience while learning online.
Students will learn that long vowels say their name and then get practice spelling words with the CVCe phonics pattern.
In this particular version of the activity, students will work on long “I” vowel sound while building words like “bike,” “lime” and “kite.”
They will interact with the slides by dragging the virtual letter magnets over to the boxes and building the words illustrated on the slides.
Not only does this give your students practice with learning CVCe words, but it will also reinforce letter sound identification. Not to mention, students will develop computer skills and eye-hand coordination too.
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 making long vowel sounds!

Using the CVCe Activity
Students will determine the name of the object pictures on the slide.
Then they they will apply what they know about letter sounds and the silent e to build the word in the boxes below the picture.
This continues until they have built the CVCe words on each slide.
The last two slides of the activity include an answer key so that students or parents can easily check their work. You can always delete slides, if you don’t want them included.
