My prep for this center was super quick!
I printed the activity on white cardstock and laminated it for durability.
Then I cut apart all the cards.
Finally, I grabbed three bags and placed all the Es in one of them, the picture cards in another, and the word cards in the last bag.
CVCe Word Work Center
I wanted to review the silent E with my small group before diving in so I selected just one vowel to work on first: A.
I picked up the A vowel word cards, the A vowel pictures and a few blue E cards.
Then I quickly reviewed the rules for the silent E: when an E is placed at the end of a word, it makes the first vowel say its name.
I laid all the long vowel word cards and picture cards face up on the table. Then I put the blue E letters in a pile off to the side.
The first child chose a word card that said “can”.
She read the word on the card out loud and then placed a blue E in the box next to the word. Then she read the new word to the group: “cane!”
She found the colorful picture of the cane and placed it in the box next to the new CVCe word.
The next child repeated the same steps with a new card: cap.
He made sure to say both the old word and new word out loud before finding the picture that matched.
Once we had worked through all of the A cards, I pulled out the O batch and the turns started again.
We continued this process until all the word cards were complete.
This was such an easy and fun way for kids to practice their CVCe words! I love how interactive the activity was and how easy it was to differentiate.
