An interactive PowerPoint for students to practise reading CVC words.
Here’s a resource that your beginning readers will love playing with – either independently, in small groups or as a whole class with individuals taking turns.
The quiz encourages students to focus on the middle letter sound (the short vowel sound) in CVC words. This fabulous PowerPoint includes audio – making it even more suitable for independent use! In the audio, students hear each CVC word segmented into its individual phonemes. This then assists them in blending the sounds.
Each slide presents a picture, along with the initial and final sounds (consonants) of the word depicted. The vowel grapheme is missing. If using the audio, students click on the sound button to hear the word and its individual phonemes. Their task is to identify the missing vowel sound. On the right-hand panel, they are given two vowel grapheme options. When they hover over each grapheme, they hear its sound. Students then click on the grapheme that matches the missing vowel sound. If they are correct, the grapheme appears in the missing part of the word.
For an extra challenge, the PowerPoint can be used without the sound.
CVC Word List
A mixture of short vowel phonemes are explored.
The words include: mat, pan, leg, lid, wag, tap, sit, dad, red, zip, nap, hen, six, pot, bun, bat, ten, bin, mum, hot, sad, sun, jet, tin, ham, pet, dig, cot, jam, run, dot, and hit.
Help your students gain confidence in reading CVC words with this fabulous resource! Their segmenting and blending skills will improve as they have a go at identifying the missing short vowel sounds in each word. This PowerPoint has a very simple and clear design to make it easy for young children to use the resource independently.
