I write CVC words on notecards and place them in a bucket. During a center activity, the children take a card from the bucket, write the word on the CVC worksheet (attached) and draw a picture of the word. I use this to see that the children can read the word successfully...if they can draw an accurate picture, they read the word correctly. You can use this for CVCe words too! I make sure that the words can easily be translated into a picture.
