Help your students easily chunk words, develop automaticity in recognizing words, examine patterns in words, increase vocabulary, and improve reading fluency!
Introduce and review CVC word families with these fun two-piece puzzles! The words are organized and color-coded by rime. Using these puzzles will help you clearly understand your students’ knowledge of word structure and will help you tailor your instruction to more specifically meet individual needs. We have found these to be very helpful as RTI activities in our classrooms.
We recommend printing these on cardstock and laminating them for endurance. We find it much easier to laminate the assembled puzzles before cutting apart the pieces.
We have included a very large number of words here so that you will have a comprehensive bank of choices. We find it easier to have a thorough resource that we can pull from over and over again. We have made subsets of these cards and stored them in separate bags. This provides enough for several small groups to each use a set simultaneously, and it allows us to easily rotate and jigsaw (no pun intended) the activities we do with the cards. The color coding of these puzzles makes it easy for you to differentiate based on individual needs in your word study program, and it allows you to provide gradual release as your students become ready.
This product is helpful for homework practice, center activities, and small-group assignments. The cards lend themselves to vocabulary development and phonetic awareness. These puzzles are excellent for special education and ESL students. For advanced students, we assign additional activities such as alphabetizing the words, defining them using the dictionary, or writing the guide words on the dictionary page where the word is found. Students also use the words provided to create sentences, stories, or poems.
We have had a ton of fun learning how to make puzzles for a variety of classroom activities. To see other puzzles we have made
