Build it Up: All you need to do is print and you are ready to go. The students will look at the pictures and write the matching CVC word. The top corner of the worksheet shows you what word family they will be using.
Build a Word: I usually do this activity during small group instruction. I have 6 work mats printed and laminated that I reuse over and over again. Each week I pull the teacher direction card and letters that match what skill I’m teaching at that time. While I teach I follow the teacher directions to help guide my instruction. I use my plastic alphabet letters that I store in an alphabet container. However, if you don’t have plastic alphabet letters then you can print and laminate the letter cards that I’ve provided for each activity.
