Little readers who have just begun reading need ample practice for sounding out CVC words. The fact that short vowel sounds can be really confusing for our little readers makes the practice all the more important. But how many worksheets or flashcards or word lists can we have them do? After a while, the kids start resisting it. Games ensure that kids get to have fun while practicing sounding out CVC words.
In this post, I will be sharing ten free printables. These are basically board games with CVC words and I have used the Angry Birds theme and I am sure all kids are going to love it.
The bird has to reach its eggs which are in the nest. The path to that is filled with CVC words. You can only move ahead if you read the CVC words correctly. Roll the die. The number you get is the number of spaces you move.
Read the CVC word you have landed on. If you read it correctly, you get to stay there.
If you read the CVC word incorrectly, you move back to the original place.
But you do not want to go where the King Pig is. If you get to the King Pig’s space, run. Run back two spaces.
The first five printables focus on short vowel a e i o u separately.
The above printable has all the CVC a e i o u words together.
For those who are learning English as a second language, short vowel ‘a’ and ‘e’ sound can be very confusing. The above CVC game will take care of that. You will find words like man, men, tan, ten, bat, bet, sat, set, bad, bed, etc.
My kids absolutely love these games and cannot get enough of these. I usually print them on card stock or a heavy sheet and laminate them. All you need is a dice and some counters and you are ready to go.
The one who reaches the nest first wins the game.
