This set of CVC read and write the room centers includes two differentiated sets of 80 word cards. The first set of cards includes pictures and written words for students to decode and copy. The second set has dashes in place of the letters needed to spell each word. Students must look at each picture, segment the word, and write it on their recording sheets. Corresponding pictures give meaning to the words as students write them. This makes them great vocabulary builders for all students, and especially for those learning English as a second language. Two sets of sixteen word cards and a recording sheet are included for short each vowel.
Mixed practice recording sheets are also included should you wish to have students decode, sort, and write the words. This is a great option for review!
These cards can be used in a variety of ways. In my own second grade classroom, I use them during my small group center rotations at the beginning of the week, when the weekly phonics and spelling skill is still new. I tape the cards around the classroom, give each student in the center group a clipboard, and send them on a silent scavenger hunt to find, read, and write each word on their recording sheets. There is also space at the bottom of each recording sheet for students to practice writing a sentence using one of the words. This activity could also be done as a whole-class scoot game.
