CVC Words – Kindergarten Literacy Centers
Paint Palette CVC Words
This activity combines the fun of fine motor practice with reading. You can add the milk lids to make it 3D or just have kids place pom poms directly on the paper.
Stamp & Read CVC Words
We LOVE these alphabet stamps, and they are great for building words. I love that the kids can feel and touch the word while they decode and read.
CVC Words Bingo
This CVC words Bingo allows kids to decode and read the words in two different ways. First they can build the word with a beginning sound and word ending. Then they get to read the words on their bingo card to see if it is there. We LOVE the extra practice.
Balloon Pop CVC Words
Children get to “pop” a playdough balloon as they pronounce each sound in these words. Then they follow the arrow with their finger to read it fast.
Slide & Read CVC Words
This slider allows kids to experiment with switching out beginning and ending sounds as well as medial vowels. It’s great for practicing rhyming words and word families.
Cupcake CVC Words
Kids love cupcakes. This activity is all about making their cupcake words on the back of a baking tin. The magnetic letters stick to the pan, and it’s a lot of fun.
CVC Word Cards
We love these simple fill in the blank word cards, because they help kids distinguish sounds in all parts of the words. We used magnetic letters to fill in the blanks, but any small letters you have will work.
CVC Word Pockets
These fine motor word pockets are fun and functional. Kids can slip craft sticks in to build words, then flip just one stick to make a similar word or start with all new sticks. We used plain color sticks for the vowels and colored sticks for consonants.
Read & Push CVC Words
A used Ziploc box makes this fun read and bop game. Just add ping pong balls.
CVC Flag Word Building
Placing flags in playdough to build words is a lot of fun. It’s a great sensory way to practice your reading.
Kids love, love, LOVE this game. For this activity, you place a little playdough ball on each mole hill, and then read the words. If it’s a real word, you move on. If it’s a nonsense word, you get to whack it with a hammer.
Milk Lid CVC Words
Here is another fine motor skills reading game. For this one you get to screw on milk lids to make the beginning sound for each word. Swap out tree pages for different word endings.
CVC Words Worksheets
We’ve included 15 no-prep worksheets in this set for you as well. It allows kids to keep working on those skills they’ve been practicing in their centers. Here is a sneak peek at some of the worksheets in this set.
