Help your students warm up this winter with a cupful of cocoa and some CVC Word Family mats with marshmallows. Students will build CVC words with the included “marshmallows”. They will match the marshmallows to the hot cocoa word mats.

Recommended Grade Level:

Materials for the CVC Marshmallow Words

  • Paper
  • Laminating Materials
  • Paper Cutter


162 CVC words to practice

Most word families are separated for ease of use. You can chose to print the word families that you want.

Print your choice of pages 3-29 on card stock or laminate for durability. Cut out the cards and select the cards that you want for your students.

Print multiple copies of page 30-31 depending on how many words that you want students to make at the same time. I have included only the consonants that are needed to make the words in this packet to limit excess printing.

Provide the students with the mats that you want them to work on and multiple copies of the letters.

Put the letters the students will be working with in an envelope for easy storage. (I use very small zip-top bags. )

Students will work independently or in pairs to create the CVC words shown on the cups.
