This activity is designed to be used with square letter tiles or magnetic letters; however it can be used "as is" and students can write in the letters into the CVC word boxes. As a reading specialist, I learned that students need to learn to manipulate the sounds or phonemes of words. This type of activity is better to use than teaching word families because students learn to manipulate the beginning AND ending sounds instead of memorizing a rhyme. Eventually students can change the medial sound as well. This product has worksheets for short a, e, i, o and u. This can be used as an independent activity OR as a guided activity where the teacher can determine the letter sound and position to build new CVC words. This builds reading and writing skills and promotes higher order thinking Enjoy this freebie! I just ask that you consider following my TPT page or blog: http://kinderverse.blogspot.com/ I am new to this online community of teachers :)
