CVC Words with a Technology Freebie

Consonant Vowel Consonant 
(CVC) words 
are HUGE in Kindergarten!

These are the words we want children to sound out! CVC words are so important and I spend lots of time teaching various phonics and phonemic awareness activities using them. 

Towards the end of the year, I noticed that my students were making careless mistakes while reading because they weren't looking at the entire word. I really wanted to revisit CVC words and remind them how important it is to look at the WHOLE word! I love any opportunity to incorporate technology, so this little activity was born! Students scanned the QR code on each picture card and decided if the word shown matched the picture and sorted accordingly.

There are tons of free QR Scanners available. I use i-Nigma on my iPod touches. I wrote a grant a few years ago on Donors Choose for my iPod touches and I have loved using them!

If you are interested in using this activity in your classroom, head to my TPT store to download it FOR FREE! : ) Just click the picture below! 

And I always love an educational bingo game! My class loved playing CVC Word Bingo! I wanted my students to have to read the words independently, so I used my document camera to display the word cards.They read each word and determined if they had the picture on their board. 

We played "black out BINGO" and of course the winner earned a trip to the prize box! 

I hope you can use theses resources to teach or review CVC words in your classroom!

  1. Teach Your Child to Read Today!

    Reading is one of the most important skills one must master to succeed in life. It helps your child succeed in school, helps them build self-confidence, and helps to motivate your child. Being able to read will help your child learn more about the world, understand directions on signs and warnings on labels, allow them to discover reading as an entertainment, and help them gather information.

    Learning to read is very different from learning to speak, and it does not happen all at once. There is a steady progression in the development of reading ability over time. The best time for children to start learning to read is at a young age - even before they enter pre-school. Once a child is able to speak, they can begin developing basic reading skills. Very young children have a natural curiosity to learn about everything. They are naturally intrigued by the printed texts they see, and are eager to learn about the sounds made by those letters. You will likely notice that your young child likes to look at books and thoroughly enjoys being read to. They will even pretend to behave like a reader by holding books and pretend to read them.

    At what age can you start teaching a child to read? When they're babies? At 2 years old, 3, 4, or 5 years old, or wait until they're in school?

    If you delay your child's reading skill development until he or she enters school, you are putting your child at risk...

    Did you know that 67% of all Grade 4 students cannot read at a proficient level! According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress, of those 67%, 33% read at just the BASIC level, and 34% CANNOT even achieve reading abilities of the lowest basic level!

    There is a super simple and extremely effective system that will even teach 2 and 3 year old children to read.

    This is a unique reading program developed by two amazing parents and reading teachers, Jim and Elena, who successfully taught their four children to read before turning 3 years old. The reading system they developed is so effective that by the time their daughter was just 4 years 2 months old, she was already reading at a grade 3 level. They have videos to prove it.

    Their reading system is called Children Learning Reading, and it is nothing like the infomercials you see on TV, showing babies appearing to read, but who have only learned to memorize a few word shapes. This is a program that will teach your child to effectively decode and read phonetically. It will give your child a big head start, and allow you to teach your child to read and help your child develop reading skills years ahead of similar aged children.

    This is not a quick fix solution where you put your child in front of the TV or computer for hours and hope that your child learns to "read"... somehow...

    This is a reading program that requires you, the parent, to be involved. But the results are absolutely amazing. Thousands of parents have used the Children Learning Reading program to successfully teach their children to read.

    All it takes is 10 to 15 minutes a day.
