Google Interactive CVCC Word Building Activity

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide | 1 page | Grades: K - 1

Practice building, reading, and writing words with consonants, vowels, blends, and digraphs while spelling CVCC words.

Master CVCC Words in a Digital Learning Environment

Phonics instruction and word study skills are tough to teach in the classroom. They are even more challenging to build in the digital learning environment. Students need multiple opportunities to interact with letters, words, and sounds to build the reading fluency necessary for academic success. Virtual and in-person students will engage in word-building activities while reading and spelling l CVCC (consonant-vowel-consonant-consonant) words. 

This activity is a Google Slides Interactive resource. Students will click and drag letter tiles to build words based on a picture stimulus. After making each word,  students practice spelling the word once again by typing the word. Students will complete word-building exercises for 22 CVCC words.

To use, assign the resource in Google Classroom and have students open the file in Edit mode. Once in edit mode, students will be able to view, build, and type the words to complete the activity.

Through this activity, students will enhance both developmental reading and spelling skills.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your reading and writing lessons.

In addition to individual student work time, use this activity to enhance learning through guided reading groups, RTI exercises, whole class lessons, or remote learning assignments. 

Suppose you have a mixture of above-level, below-level, and ELL/ESL students. In that case, we have a few suggestions for keeping students on track with these concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

Have struggling students use an anchor chart or sound wall to identify the letters, digraphs, and blends needed to spell each word.

Complete the word-building exercises in a one-to-one learning environment.

Allow students to segment each word on a marker board 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 document.

Have students write sentences or stories centered around 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 mini whiteboards.
