Three letter words or CVC words are the foundation of becoming a good reader and writer. It is what introduces the children to the world of blending and segmenting sounds and understanding patterns in words. This pack is ideal for kindergarten to practice writing three-letter words.
We begin with beginning sounds for letters and then move on to blending those sounds. Word families for CVC words are introduced and once the children are comfortable with blending, we teach them segmenting. Segmenting of sounds is what teaches our little learners how to spell.
