If you are teaching CVC words, and are looking for a free printable CVC words list, you have come to the right spot! I have one here for you.
I have been putting together a few different CVC spelling and reading activities to use in your teaching lately.
You can find them here:
I have a kindergarten-aged daughter learning to read, so this has been a big focus around our home lately. I love it when kids finally learn the sounds of the letters and can start putting those sounds together to read words! It’s exciting for kids as well.
I am teaching my fourth child to read now. It’s a fun and exciting time in a child’s life. I think it is really important to teach reading in a gentle way so kids can find a love of reading in the process.
It’s easy to lose your patience in the process of teaching a child to read. But we need to remember that it is new and difficult and does not yet come naturally to them.
Since it can sometimes be hard to think of a variety of words to use in teaching your young readers, I put together a printable CVC word list for all of you!
What Are CVC Words?
CVC stands for the Consonant Vowel Consonant sound in a word. They are three letter words that are spelled with a consonant a vowel and a consonant, in that order. They are all simple words that are perfect for teaching and practicing reading. These are the words you’ll find in the easy reader books along with a few simple sight words.
Teach Reading With CVC Words
When teaching kids to read, we begin with the letters and sounds. When teaching phonics skills, we have a set of flashcards with the letters and all of their sounds on the back. I review them with my daughter a couple of times a week. It’s important for kids to learn all of the letter sounds.
However, the short vowel sounds are the first ones that kids learn, and CVC words are all short vowel words making it easy for kids to read them.
CVC words are easy to build with letter tiles or letter flashcards. You can really do a lot of fun activities with them when teaching kids to read.
See my post on 100 FUN Spelling Activities. Many of these use CVC words or could be adapted to use them. Use my CVC words list to give you inspiration on these activities.
Printable CVC Words List
I made a list of CVC words divided out by word families. There is a page for each vowel (a, e, i, o and u) and each vowel divides the words further by word families.
