Nonsense Words by Nita
Featuring VCe word patterns
► 57 words with the long vowel consonant silent e pattern ( CVCe ). I have tried used all of the long vowels and I tried to use a large variety of the other letters.
I’m posting more words that don’t make any sense. These Nonsense words are great for beginning readers that are just beginning to put sounds together. Great for drilling the whole class or for small groups and centers.
I’ve read some of the rationale on the internet for using nonsense words. One of the things I found is that teachers are using nonsense words as way to practice and assess the phonics skills that they have taught. One site mentioned that using nonsense words takes the pressure off of figuring out the meaning. Another rationale is that nonsense words helps the students with syllabication of longer words. When they get to the longer words with multiple syllables, they will have an easier time decoding them if they are fluent in nonsense words. The DIBELS assessment (which our district uses) includes assessments for nonsense words … especially in the lower grades.
