Decoding multisyllabic words is an important skill for beginning readers. VC-Cy words allow new or struggling readers to read longer words that follow a pattern. Only knowledge of consonants, short vowels, and the fact that y can make the long e sound is needed to decode these words.
There are three versions (20 cards each) of the puzzles below. Each subsequent version has more visual support.
Version 1 has black words on a white background.
Version 2 has black consonants and red vowels on a white background.
Version 3 has back consonants and red vowels along with swoops and the vc-cy labels that correlate with Orton-Gillingham teaching.
