Are your students struggling to read, spell, and differentiate between short vowel CVC and long vowel CVCe words? This resource includes 14 CVC to CVCe puzzles. Students will match each short vowel CVC word with a picture illustrating its meaning on one side. On the other side, they will add a silent e to the end of the word and match with a picture illustrating the new long vowel word they create. The visuals are also great for building vocabulary!
To prolong their use, I recommend laminating these cards or printing them on sturdy cardstock before cutting them apart along the solid lines.
You can make this resource self-checking by placing matching colored dots or stickers on the back of the puzzle pieces. If you would like a written record of your students’ work, two recording sheet options, along with corresponding answer keys are also included.
As is, these puzzles print two to a page. If you would like to save ink by printing smaller puzzles, you can choose change your printer setting to "print two to a page" or a similarly worded option. This smaller size option is shown in the sample photos.
