This is a great activity to help students learn to isolate phonemes and sound out CVC words. The task of first stretching out the word and then writing it down helps them to internalize this skill. Mini Slinky’s Can be purchased at Target, Walmart, or the Dollar Tree at a very inexpensive price. These cards should be laminated for durability. 40 words cards included in the full version!
Choose a card.
Use your Slinky to stretch out each CVC word, making the slinky a little bigger for each sound. (ie: C—A—T)
3. Write the word on the lines below.
As an extension I have students pick a couple of their cards and add their words to our class vowel chart.
