This eye-catching, Halloween-themed game focuses on 20 CVC words, including 4 words for each medial vowel. I revised the product to include blank cards, too! It is appropriate for use in preschool through first grade. The words are presented in a matching game format to make it easy for younger students. Recording sheets in color and black-and-white are also included. The game can be used for small group reading instruction, as practice for pairs of students, or sent as homework.
This product addresses the following Common Core* Language Arts Standards for Kindergarten and First Grade:
RF.K.2. Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds (phonemes). Recognize and produce rhyming words. Count, pronounce, blend, and segment syllables in spoken words. Blend and segment onsets and rimes of single-syllable spoken words. Isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in three-phoneme (consonant-vowel-consonant, or CVC) words.1 (This does not include CVCs ending with /l/, /r/, or /x/.) Add or substitute individual sounds (phonemes) in simple, one-syllable words to make new words.
RF.K.3. Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words. Demonstrate basic knowledge of letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary or most frequent sound for each consonant. Associate the long and short sounds with the common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels. Distinguish between similarly spelled words by identifying the sounds of the letters that differ.
L.K.2. Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing. Spell simple words phonetically, drawing on knowledge of sound-letter relationships.
RF.1.2. Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds (phonemes). Orally produce single-syllable words by blending sounds (phonemes), including consonant blends. Isolate and pronounce initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in spoken single-syllable words.
RF.1.3. Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words. Decode regularly spelled one-syllable words.
