This activity is accompanied with a video which can be used as a whole group, small group or center activity to teach or practice CVC words with short e and i vowels. It is an interactive activity for students to practice and learn CVC words. This beginning activity is the first video in a series that increases in difficulty and focuses on the most difficult consonants for students to master such as b, d.
This video shows students a picture that is identified as a cvc word such as fig. The student says the sounds with the teacher and is assigned a color to color the corresponding cvc word on the worksheet. The video reviews the sounds with the students and asks the students to repeat the sounds aloud. Then the video will demonstrate why each bug is the appropriate choice so that students can correct their work if needed and receives the extra support they need to build confidence.
Worksheets: You can copy and print the thumbnails of the worksheets from this website or go to WWW.ewcata. com and download the pdf files under the YouTube video tab. Both the key and worksheet are on thumbnails and at www.ewcata.com under YouTube tab.
Whole Group use: The teacher simply needs to copy the worksheet and have students ready at their desks or with clipboards on the carpet. They need their crayons to complete the activity. The teacher shows the video and the students complete the activity. Teachers may pause the video to have the students repeat CVC sounds in the round. Recommendation: Teachers can then make flashcards with the words from the activity and play around the world or have students read the cards in choral.
