What’s Inside?

The free CVC games include:

Board Games

Each player has to roll the dice and sound out the individual sounds of the CVC word they land on. They then identify the vowel sound and write the word on the game recording sheet below the corresponding heading. For example, if a player lands on “cab” they need to say “cab, /c/ /a/ /b/, cab has an “a” sound”. Then they’ll write “cab” below the short a heading.

The activity helps new readers practice the skill of oral segmenting which involves breaking a word down into phonemes {individual sounds}. For example, “cat” is broken down into the phonemes /c/ /a/ /t/ and “dog” has the phonemes /d/ /o/ /g/.

Oral segmenting is important for helping kids spell, rhyme and notice patterns in words.

Short Vowel Worksheets

The first two worksheets require children to look at the picture and write the missing vowel. The third worksheet is a fun word search where children can use a different color to represent each vowel sound.
