CVC Words fun where students grab a card and look at the beginning sounds of the pictures to figure out the secret CVC word!
There are 10 words included for each short vowel sound (short a, e, i, o, and u) for 50 words total. Alphabet letter sounds practice AND amazing phonics practice in 1 activity!
These are so fun! They are great for practicing beginning sounds AND reading short vowel CVC words at the same time!
Get this in the Secret Words BUNDLE to have these for the entire year!
Want to see REAL PICTURES of my CVC word families versions of these?
Short Vowel Word Families Centers (they're just like these but focus on each word family so there are a lot more cards)
You can get those in this bundle:
If you want to see REAL PICTURES of THESE cards, scroll down to about the middle of this HUGE blog post of Short Vowel teaching ideas - it has a ton of CVC ideas and also shows how I use these Secret Word cards!
These also come in a Sign Language version!
I also have these for sight words!!
& Other Sounds:
You can laminate the cards and have students use dry erase markers to write the letter for each sign then write them on their recording sheet when they're all done. You can also use bottle caps (water bottle caps work great!) with letters written on them to put in the boxes, alphabet magnets, or any letter manipulative!
Several levels of recording sheets are included so you can decide what works best for your class and differentiate for the different learners in your class.
I have included a really easy to use table of contents that lists all of the words by sound and you simply click on the word you need and it will take you to that page. This will make it SO easy for planning each week - just click on the words you need that week, print, and go!
Your students will love figuring out the secret CVC word! These are perfect for a literacy station to practice working with words and are especially great for fast finishers who need a challenge or want to see something different than the typical working with words activity.
