Teaching CVC Words in Kindergarten

Picture cards are an important component of learning to read because they allow students to connect a visual image with a written word. Physically building short e words, for example, from pictures before writing them ensures students use multiple senses rather than just reading off of a list of words.

On Life Over C’s we have 30+ word games and activities.

Fun themes include:

  • Seasons
  • Holidays
  • School
  • Rainbow Unicorn
  • Beach
  • Rainy Day
  • Spring Flowers
  • Bubblegum
  • Apple

You are sure to find a theme that excites your preschoolers and kindergarteners! Use the printable CVC words with pictures as independent literacy activities or partner games.
