Getting Ready

To prep the puzzles (below), I began by printing them on card stock to give them extra durability.

Then, I ran them through my laminator and cut along the dotted lines to separate the pieces.


As I cut apart each of the 24 puzzles, I slid them into separate snack size zip bags so kids could easily grab a complete set.

That’s it! The prep took just a few minutes to complete.

CCVC Puzzle Time

My students and I have been working on blends or digraphs, so they were ready to tackle both CCVC words at the same time.

I spread four of the CCVC puzzles out on a table at a time so the kids could find the matching pieces.

As we went along, I talked about the pictures with the kids and let them know the names of some of the trickier words like clam. It was great to see kids recognize the blends we have been learning like “fr” in frog.


My students loved solving the puzzles and sounding out the words at the end. Such a simple way to reinforce their learning.
