CVCC Word Building - Google Slides Interactive Activity

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide | 1 page | Years: 1 - 2

Practise spelling and reading CVCC words by identifying and blending sounds using this interactive Google Slides activity.

Master CVCC Words in a Digital Learning Environment

Phonemic awareness is an essential skill required for both spelling and decoding words. Students need multiple opportunities to interact with letters and their corresponding sounds to build up their knowledge of our complicated alphabetic code.

This interactive Google Slides resource has been designed to allow your students to practise these fundamental decoding skills. Students will click and drag letter tiles to build words based on a picture stimulus. After making each word, students practise spelling the word once again by typing the word. The resource contains 22 examples of CVCC words.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your literacy program. It can be used in whole-class or small-group setting, or as an individual activity for more-capable, independent learners.

We suggest the following differentiation strategies to support the diverse needs of your learners:

🆘 Support Struggling Students

  • Provide an anchor chart or sound wall to help students identify the graphs needed to spell each word.
  • Encourage students to segment each word on a mini whiteboard or sheet of paper before building each word.

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

  • Encourage fast finishers to identify and spell other words that rhyme with those presented in the resource.
  • Have students write sentences or stories using the images and words shown in the resource.

🧑‍ Group Learning

  • Project the slides onto a screen and work through them as a class by having students record their answers in their notebooks or on mini whiteboards.
