FREE Christmas CVC Clip Cards

Learning to sound out CVC words will build a strong foundation for beginning readers. One important part of that is being able to identify medial sounds.

These holiday-themed clip cards will help preschool and kindergarten aged students do that in a fun and engaging way.


Preparing the Cards

Print out the CVC clip cards. I prefer to print on cardstock, because it is sturdier than regular printer paper. I also suggest laminating the cards for durability. This will help them hold up to hours of learning fun.

Gather some paperclips or clothespins for identifying vowel sounds.


How to Play

Once the cards are laminated and cut apart, they are ready for use. Kids will choose a card and identify the picture featured in each Christmas gift.

They will determine which vowel sound is heard in the word. There is a clue on each card which shows the beginning and ending sounds in case the child struggles to identify the image.

Three vowels are shown across the bottom of the card. Kids will use a paperclip or clothespin to identify which one finishes the word.


This activity helps beginning readers practice CVC words. They’ll listen for medial sounds, and identify the letter that makes that sound on each card.

Using paperclips and clothespins to identify those letters also helps little hands build fine motor muscles.

Add this activity to your holiday learning centers this Christmas. In addition to this activity, young preschoolers may enjoy going on a Christmas Alphabet Letters Scavenger Hunt as they focus on letter recognition. They may also enjoy focusing on beginning math and literacy skills with a fun set of Preschool Reindeer Printable Math and Literacy Activities.
