Word work and phonics can be fun and engaging when students use manipulatives to build, read, and write CVC words. Students will identify and isolate initial, medial, and final sounds when working on these 20 CVC word cards.

You can use any letter manipulatives you have in your classroom such as...

  • letter erasers
  • letter tiles
  • magnetic letters
  • ABC clothespin/clips

You can also laminate the task cards and have students write on them with a dry erase marker. This word work activity will be ready to go in minutes... just print, cut, and go!

*Digital TpT Activity*- Assign to your students in Google classroom and have them complete the task cards digitally using the pen feature
