CVC (short vowel) Word Searches!
Word Searches are a great way for beginning readers to master reading, and writing, and identify simple CVC words! These NO PREP pages provide fun and effective practice for short vowel CVC words. Kids LOVE word searches and this is the PERFECT way to incorporate some phonics practice!
CVC words are usually the first words a student learns once they have mastered consonant and vowel sounds. These short words are perfect for helping students grasp the importance of the letter and sound relationship within words. Some students grasp this skill easily, while other students need lots of practice and repetition. It is a skill that we spend a lot of time working on in Kindergarten and 1st grade.
There are 4 no-prep CVC Word Search pages included in this activity. The only prep required is to print! They make a great activity for morning work, literacy stations, or as fast finisher activities and all this is free for you!
This file here includes only 4 pages for CVC words with a short vowel, but you can find the other CVC products here on our website just look for similar posts or use the search section.
To prepare for this activity you just need to print them! Students will read the “Word List”, located on the left side of the mat. They will find each of the words listed and circle, color, or highlight the word. Finally, they will record the corresponding CVC word under the matching picture at the bottom.
For fast finishers, there is a challenge statement at the bottom of each page. Students will select one word and turn the paper over on the back and use the word in a sentence.
