This is a great CVC activity that is common core friendly. It is also part of a phonics bundle that also includes long vowels blends and finale "e". This would be a great activity for small groups, centers or morning start.
These activities would also be great for second language learners.
Students will find CVC words that are spelled correctly, spelled incorrectly and finally students will color code CVC words to make a design. This activity helps with letter sound association and short vowels. These activities can't help but reinforce letter sound association!
