As kids master learning their short vowel sounds, they will naturally begin to be curious about blending letters to form words. Today, I’m excited to share some super easy-prep CVC activity sheets to help your preschool students master CVC words.
These activities are sure to inspire your students to want to learn short vowel sounds and word families. These CVC games are super low prep, meaning that all you need to use them is a printer and maybe some dice!
What are CVC activity sheets?
Looking for some SUPER easy LOW prep ideas? Honestly, in my experience, the low prep ideas are some of the best ones to have on hand when a. you are tired. b. you are recovering from a cold and c. all of the above! As teachers and mothers, there only so many hours in a day or week that we can constantly be preparing lesson plans and reinventing the wheel when it comes to lesson planning.
CVC activity sheets make it so much easier, just print and go! These games were particularily chosen to make your life simpler when it comes to finding and preparing some print and go worksheets that don’t involve much prep time. A lot fo the CVC games found on many sites include some prep time, it’s great to use those. But for times when you need a bunch of cvc words worksheets for free in a giffy, that’s why I’ve bundles these up in one post here.
CVC Words Worksheets Free
Sometimes, you also want simple CVC words worksheets to print and use in a multi setting classroom with students with different abilities and needs. These printable CVC Activity Sheets target a number of skills.
If you’re looking to re-use the same sheet within your centers year on year, I LOVE laminating them and sometimes hole punching the mats and adding them to binders. Amazon has a HUGE set of laminating pouches for a steal. I always stock up on them to use throughout the year.
This printable read and cover game with groundhogs is perfect for preschoolers and kindergarten kids. Just print the mats and the matching words, have the kids read the words on the cards and find the matching CVC word on the mat. They will then add it to cover the ‘groundhog’.
They continue this until all CVC words are covered. Grab this printable at the bottom of this post.
Reading CVC Words Game
This next print and go worksheet includes the use of dice. Have the kids roll the die then find the matching number on the printable, they then read and sound out the letters in each box to blend the sounds and read the CVC word. They continue to roll, read and cover or color until they’ve completed the whole sheet!
