Word Chains are a hands-on approach to working with CvC words. Students are given a recording sheet with needed letters for word building. Upon each new picture spelling, students are to change one letter at a time to spell the next picture. Students will use the given letters, per the bottom of the recording sheet, spell the word, and then write it. Then, students can flip over the picture chain and check their answers with the corresponding chain on the back. The word chains are color coded by vowel sound, and each set has it’s own matching recording sheet.
