Phonics: CVC Segmenting
Valentine Heart Throbs in Black and White
Your Kindergarten students will enjoy this Valentine ELAR literacy center. It is designed to be used in a small group of up to six students. This one is pretty even though it is black and white for teachers that do not have access to color printing. This same center is offered in color if you prefer. The price is the same for each one. (There is a touch of color on the small hearts used in the guided practice segmenting activity. I thought the color code to be helpful so I left it.)
Six students will get to segment five CVC words using each of the short vowels. This activity is the guided practice with the teacher. Preparation and teaching instructions are included. Depending on student ability, this activity could be used on five different days by using one short vowel to segment each day. Or the guided practice could all be done in one lesson if time permits.
There is a total of 30 CVC words. There are 30 matching pictures for each of the CVC words. All words have color coded letter hearts to help students segment the individual phonemes/sounds. The first letter is green for go. The middle letter is yellow. And the ending sound is coded red. This activity targets segmenting and blending of sounds in a way that students understand. It is hands on manipulation of sounds. Very good for kinesthetic learners.
Valentine Heart Throbs- is a game that holds students' attention. It is fun and can be played two different ways. Game instructions and variations are included.
