Pumpkin CVC word work printable mats for phonics instruction in kindergarten and first grade. Students spin the spinner on the top left, land on a CVC word picture, build the word in the pumpkin's open mouth on the top right and then write the word on the handwriting lines at the bottom of the mat.

How to Use the Spin and Build Mats

To begin, each child gets a mat. They will then place a transparent spinner over the spinner on the mat . Once they spin, they build the word they landed on inside the pumpkin’s mouth. Finally, they will write that word on the line and practice reading the word.

For example, if the game board has CVC words with a short a sound on it. The student will spin the spinner and land on the word “cat.”

They will then build the word in the mouth of the pumpkin. Lastly, they will write the word “cat” on the line. Then, erase and spin again. The line is long enough for students to write the word more than once, if you would like.

Your students will be engaged in fun and learning while using these read, build, and write mats! Students will be working on letter sounds, letter recognition, consonant vowel consonant words, phonics skills and more!

I just love all the possibilities!
