Looking for a fun, hands-on way to practice CVC words that your students are sure to love? This low prep, high engagement activity is the perfect way for your class to practice reading CVC words while getting some of those pre-Christmas break wiggles out!

To prep this activity, print the CVC word and picture cards out and cut each paper in half down the line. Ball up each half sheet of paper to make “snowballs” and spread the snowballs around the room.

When you give the signal, students will race to grab a snow ball and open it up. From that point on, there are two ways you can have your students play:

  • Find a partner – Students must find a partner that has the snowball with the picture that matches the word on their snowball.
  • Read the word – For this activity, only put out the WORD snowballs. Students must read the word written on their snowball.

After students have completed the task, they can divide into two groups, throw the snowballs, and continue the learning fun!

This activity includes:

  • Instructions page with ways to play
  • 25 CVC Word Snowballs
  • 25 snowballs with colorful pictures to match each CVC word
