This set of CVC read and write the room centers includes 80 word cards with corresponding pictures that give meaning to the words as students decode, and write them. This makes them great vocabulary builders for all students, and especially for those learning English as a second language. Sixteen word cards and a recording sheet are included for each short vowel (a,e,i,o,u).
A mixed practice recording sheet is also included should you wish to have students decode, sort by vowel sounds, 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.
As of 7/23/15, all recording sheets are now included with and without handwriting lines. If you have purchased before this date, please download the update!
