Turn your students into detectives as they crack the Christmas CVC code cards. Working on beginning sounds, sounding out words and blending, this fun activity is great for phonics practise. This item includes the following:
Each code card has 3 images on. Students put the beginning sound for each picture in the box above it, and then sound out the letters to read a CVC word. Students can either use letter tiles / letter magnets etc to build the word, or they can write directly onto the card.
CVC code cards are color coded by vowel, so that it is easy to select the vowel you are currently working on, or you can quickly see that you have a mix of all vowels, depending on what you require.
A code breaker mat is included, showing each letter and it's matching picture, to help any students struggling with beginning sounds. The code breaker mat is the same for each set, to build familiarity for students.
Students can record the codes they've solved on the CVC Code Cracker worksheet, writing the card number and word for each card they solve. Please note, each set starts at the number 1, so the middle vowel will need to be checked to show which set the card is from if marking.
An answer key is provided for each set for ease of reference. This can also be used to determine which cards to print for any specific words you want to work on. The answer key is included in each product preview, so that you can check the full list of words included.
Please view the preview to view a sample of what is included.
