This No-prep Word Garden Packet will walk your students through the most popular short vowel CVC combinations to reinforce basic reading skills.
Using a new fun, self-directed worksheet each day, this unit will serve as more than a month’s worth of CVC reinforcement, or the worksheets can be used individually for a specific review. The worksheets are ready to go and designed to introduce the CVC concepts in a stress-free format introducing each CVC word ending and possible word combinations in three simple steps.
Along with 28 pages of CVC worksheets and one culminating challenge page, you'll get 2 pages of garden-related glossary terms that correspond to the picture on each of the worksheets. This gives you an easy way to introduce a garden concept – from animals and birds to tools and supplies – in small bites. The glossary also defines which of these garden creatures or items are welcome in the garden and which are not allowing for additional conversation and role-playing.
Each worksheet has a corresponding answer key to make this unit absolutely no prep and while the answer key is designed with the ease of teacher in mind, it can also be handed to a student or group that wants to self-correct.
As always, the Garden Candy recipe at the end is a delicious bonus for you and a fun add-on to print and send home.
