Welcome to our CVC Activity book.
CVC words are words that follow the pattern consonant-vowel-consonant. These are considered the simplest words and the starting point of many phonics programs (after some work on initial sounds). These words highlight the short vowels such as the “a” in cat, the “e” in bed, the “i” in fin, the “o” in top, and the u in sub.
The teaching involved using CVC words highlight the importance of associating sound with their corresponding letters.. With CVC words, there are only three letters involved and these three letters pose a significant part in terms of helping young children learn words after the standard alphabet.
We found that by using CVC words to teach preschool and kindergarten children, it has improved their learning faster in terms of reading and spelling.
This is mainly due to the fact that each letter of a sample CVC word will be learned with a distinct sound. Each of the sound of the letters will also be linked together to form one word. By seeing the letter and hearing what it sounds like, more children will be able to learn from it in a faster and more efficient way.
Through CVC structured words, young children will learn the most basic sounds and the corresponding continuity of the three letters.
With CVC words, children will not only learn each sound of the three-letter structure but they will also be able to connect the three distinct sounds into a single word. With practice, using the sound guide, children will be able to learn how to read three-letter words that have the CVC structure.
Once mastered, these young children may progress to more complicated word structures beyond the three letters or one-vowel-only structure of CVC words.
