Long “U” CVCe Word Building
While using this CVCe word building activity, students will learn that long vowels say their name and then get practice spelling and reading long “U” CVCe words.
Give the flashcards a rest and make learning CVCe words a hands-on, interactive experience.
In this particular version of the activity, students will work on long “U” vowel sound while building words like “cube,” “tube” and “cute.”
This digital activity is hands-on because students will drag virtual magnetic letters over to the boxes and build the CVCe words illustrated on the slide.
Beyond learning CVCe words, students will also get extra practice with letter sound identification while developing eye-hand coordination and computer skills at the same time.
Learning about the Silent E
Students will learn that 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.”
Students will get lots of practice with adding an “e” to the end of words and making long vowel sounds while using this activity.
