Help budding readers practice initial sounds, blending, and reading CVC words with this CVC Decode and Find game. Students determine the initial sound in each picture on a puzzle card, then blend the sounds together into simple CVC words. Students can use letter tiles to build the words in this activity, or you can laminate the puzzle cards so that they can be used with dry-erase markers.
Then, students find the word they decoded on a Picture Key and mark it with a cube, a counting chip, or other manipulative. There is also a black and white version of the picture key so that students can color in the picture representations of the words they decoded if you choose.
Also included are four worksheets for students to practice sounding out and writing CVC words.
Finally, there is an alphabet chart to assist with letter sounds if needed.
