I am sharing free phonics word lists for beginning readers. A CVC word is made up of a consonant, vowel, and consonant sound. When a vowel is followed by a consonant, it is a closed syllable and makes the vowel say its sound. Words like web, hit, cod, bus are some examples of CVC words.
at words – bat, cat, fat, hat, mat, pat, rat, sat
an words – ban, can, fan, man, pan, ran, tan, van
am words – cam, dam, ham, jam, ram, yam, bam
ap words – cap, gap, lap, map, nap, rap, sap, tap, zap, yap
I have used bubble letters so the CVC words can also be traced. These lists can be used as bookmarks. The above bookmarks have CVC words for at, am, an, ap word families.
ag words – bag, gag, jag, lag, nap, rag, sag, tag, wag, zag
ack words – back, hack, jack, lack, pack, rack, sack, tack

I have also included ck words families in the list. The above bookmarks have CVC words for ag, ack, ab, and ad families. You will not have to think of words for your child to read. These short vowel word lists have sufficient words for reading practice.
