Master vowel sounds and read CVC words through this free printable- Missing Vowel Worksheets for Kindergarten!
After learning each letter of the alphabet, children are next expected to read and spell simple words.
And this is done by having the ability to break words into sounds and to blend sounds to make words.
Usually, children practice and develop these skills by reading CVC words.
CVC words are three-letter words that consist of a consonant-vowel-consonant letter pattern. These words are easy to blend and segment, thus they are the first set of words introduced to children.
How To Blend CVC Words
- Make sure that your child has already mastered all the letters. They should be able to identify and sound out individual letters with ease. This is very important because we want them to be focused on blending sounds rather than identifying letters by the time they’re faced with CVC words.
- Focus on the beginning letter first. Make sure your child can identify the beginning sound. When saying the featured word emphasize on the beginning sound, e.g. /b/,/ b/, /b/, bat. Ask them what letter they hear.
- Blend beginning and middle sounds together. Slowly sound out beginning and middle letters. Do it multiple times until your child hears how the two sounds get blended.
- Finish it off with the last consonant sound. Say the blended beginning and middle sound and then add the last letter sound. Do this multiple times until your child hears the entire word, e.g. /ba/-/t/, /ba/-/t/, /ba/-/t/… bat!
- Just keep practicing.
Working on CVC printables can also help. Just like today’s free printable.
