Challenge your child’s spelling skills through this free phonics printable- CVC Words Worksheets for Kindergarten!
After mastering the alphabet, preschoolers are next expected to read. And usually, they start with CVC words.
What are CVC words?
CVC words are three-letter words that consist of a consonant-vowel-consonant pattern. These words are easy to blend and segment that’s why preschoolers are usually introduced these words for early reading practice.
Normally, teachers introduce reading by demonstrating the blending technique. This reading technique requires mastery of letter sounds first before you can proceed.
Strong phonemic awareness is a requirement to be able to read words this way.
How To Blend CVC Words:
1. Begin with the first letter of the word. Sound it out. For example, for the word mat, sound out the letter m- /m/.
2. Next, sound out letters m and a separately and then slowly blend the two sounds- /m/, /a/, /m/, /a/… /m…a…/, /ma/.
3. Finish by blending all the letter sounds- /ma/, /t/, /ma/, /t/…/mat/.
It seems daunting at first but with gentle encouragement and the right kind of reward, your child will be reading successfully in no time!
Now let’s move to another important skill- segmenting.
Segmenting is the opposite of blending. For this one, your child has to take apart/ separate the letter sounds that they hear- and that’s the key to spelling!
Spelling is an important skill to learn. Particularly as they move up levels at school.
Also, spelling is a practical skill that is used almost every single day- more so for us as adults.
