What better way to get kids to practice their CVC words than by using CVC interactive puzzles? Kids learning their CVC words can find it specifically more difficult to stretch out their sounds. Sometimes identifying the sounds simply via auditory means just isn’t enough, they need to manipulate things or they need some visual learning to make that connection between letters and sounds. This is where these CVC cards come in handy! The fun bonus about these cards is that the kids will learn to write the letter sound as they say the word. There are four pieces to the puzzle (apple) and the kids need to find and match the pieces.
What you’ll need:
- activity template cards (below)
- dry erase markers
- colored paper (or white)
- lamination pockets
We start the activity by showing the students what their final ‘puzzles’ should look like. Tell them that they will be putting apple together piece by piece. Each piece has a connection to the rest of the pieces of the apple.
I am collaborating with some awesome bloggers for this September linky, so make sure you read on all the way to the bottom to enter a raffle draw with some TPT gifit certificates and much more!
Firstly, I printed the puzzles on A4 colored paper with two apples on each. You have the option of doing so to save paper and the puzzles also don’t come out too big! You can place the puzzle pieces with the pictures of the CVC words in one pile and so forth. The student can start by pulling a picture card and then sounding out the CVC picture word. They then look for the corresponding word puzzle piece and sound it out and finally write the missing middle vowel sound. They then find the next puzzle piece and write the initial sounds from the ABC phonics picture font; and finally connect the word as the final puzzle piece.
My students love these puzzles!
