UNIT 1: Kindergarten Phonics & Word Recognition: CVC Words with a Rhyming Pattern is the first unit from a series of five Language Arts Units which is Common Core Aligned and focuses on the common core area of phonological awareness as well as word recognition. This Unit will have your students practicing the recognition of CVC words which follow these rhyming patterns: -ap, -at, -ad, -ag, -am, -an, -et, -ip, -og, -un.
The first part of the ten Language Arts Activities will each contain a box of the letters of the alphabet for students to cut out and use on each activity page. Along with these cut-out letters, pictures of CVC rhyming words and a part of the word itself that matches each picture will be given on each page. The word presented will have its beginning letter missing; and the same _VC pattern will be practiced by the students on each page. Example: _ap words on one page, _ip on another, etc.
The second part of the Language Arts Activities within the Unit will present a farm mat for each activity: a picture of a farm scene in which students will glue, tape, or Velcro (if the farm mat is laminated) the CVC pictures along with their completed CVC words from the page before anywhere on the Farm Mat. Students will also have the opportunities to “illustrate” their Farm Mats by using the paper farm people/farm animals provided at the end of this Unit. Students will cut and paste/Velcro these paper figures onto the Farm Mat as well. This part of the activity will be quite fun for your students since they can individualize their Farm Mats through their own imaginations!
Also included within this Unit:
***Additional CVC rhyming words which can also be used on the Farm Mats
***Answer Keys to the Language Arts Rhyming Activities
***Paper cut-outs of different Farm People, Farm Animals, etc. to "illustrate" the Farm Mats
