It is so rewarding watching our children become independent readers isn’t it? Sometimes it seems as if they must master so many skills before they become independent readers. It is not surprising when you think about it. The process of reading is quite complicated. You can help your kids by giving lots of practice, reading to them for at least 15 minutes a day and making it fun.

What are CVC words?

Briefly, a CVC words are simple three letter words that consist of a Consonant, Vowel, and Consonant sound. For example, wet, hen, and pip are all CVC words. They are helpful for early readers, because they only have three sounds. This means they are easy for young readers to sound out.

Why teach CVC words?

We know that reading is one of the most important skills for our kids to master. This means that we need to focus on literacy a skills an early age. Reading requires us to make sense of (decode) the letters on the page. One of the many skills our children need to develop is the ability to read new words. To do this, children must learn to

  • Isolating the individual sounds the letters make.
  • Blend those sounds together to sound out the word.

As with any skill, the children benefit from plenty of practice.

  • It is best to pair the coloring sheets with the cards that match and no others. That way the children know that every picture they turn over will have a matching word on their sheet.
  • Feel free to print the CVC words on the back of each card if you wish. This is particularly helpful for children who struggle to read the words independently.
  • Some pictures might be tricky to identify. For example, is it a mug or a cup? A mat or a rug? A cap or a hat? If your child cannot find the word on the coloring sheet, suggest they put that card to the side until they have colored all the other candies. Then read the remaining word. Does it match the picture now?
  • Remember difficulty hearing individual sounds and blending them is a classic symptom of Dyslexia. You may want to consider testing if your child continues to struggle despite lots of practice. Find out more here.
