This product contains two student booklets with CVC words. The first one will ask the students to read CVC words in order to develop phonological awareness and word recognition. The second one will ask the students to practice reading CVC words in the context of a short passage.
Each sound in the word is represented by a dot. The student is supposed to touch each dot and say the sound, then blend all the sounds together and read the word.
Example : cat The student has to look at each letter, make each sound, and then say the sounds fast to make the word: c - a - t cat
The first book presents the CVC words in the following order:
* short a CVC words
* short e CVC words
* short i CVC words
* short o CVC words
* short u CVC words
* combination of short a, e, i, o, u CVC words (for reinforcement)
You can use the first booklet with small groups for several days before Guided Reading or you can place both booklets in a literacy center for partner or individual reading. The students can also take the booklets home and read them with a parent until they can read all the CVC words fluently.
NO PREP for you. Each child can create his own booklet : just print the pages and the students can cut them in half and staple the pages together. The books are 7-page long each.
Updated 10/27/2016: I included a VERSION with LESS WORDS per page for your lower or younger students.
