A Fun Way to Teach CVC Words to Your Students
Once students master their consonant and vowel sounds they will start to blend these sounds into CVC words.
What are CVC words?
This is a type of word that makes up a consonant sound, vowel, and a consonant. It is spelled in a way where a vowel precedes a consonant, which makes all the sounds easy to pronounce. Some consonant vowel consonant words include big, dog, and bag.
When should I teach CVC words to students?
The perfect time to teach CVC words is after they master how to pronounce each letter of the alphabet. Reading these words involves segmenting and blending words, which requires students to understand how to sound out letters first. This is the conventional way to teach reading. First letter sounds then finally blending the sounds to form words.
