This unique CVC center has 60 sea creature cards with initial and ending consonants which students place over vowels in an ocean scene, creating an ocean of CVC words. A standard hole punch is needed to create the holes on the cards. The materials can be used for four different, engaging activities:
Single students can use their choice of creatures to fill a board with real words.
Give the student a board and 4 or 5 word cards. How many real words can they form on the board and write down using only those cards?
Randomly choose 12 word cards. Challenge the student to arrange and rearrange the cards on the vowels so that all the cards are used, and only real words are formed.
Use with a group of students. Give each player a board. Place the creature word cards face down. Students take turns turning over a card. If it can be completed using a vowel on their card, they keep it and place it on their board. The first student to fill their ocean wins.
