Activity for ages 5 to 7.
Looking for a fun way to help kids learn how to spell simple CCVC words such as ship, frog and crab? These print and play puzzles are easy to prepare and motivating to play. They make an awesome addition to a blends or digraphs literacy center!

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.
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.
