After that they tackle the middle sound. We have free matching CVC clip cards for beginning and ending sounds that you can download while you’re here. You’ll find the links below.

Phonics Activity

The way to use these middle sounds in CVC Words Clip cards is:

  • Children look at the main picture and the two letters underneath.
  • Say those sounds (for eg ‘h’ and ‘t’) and then say them again, adding the sound in the first square to the middle of the word (‘h-o-t’). What is that word? Does it match the picture?
  • Try putting the next two letters in the middle (‘h-i-t’ and ‘h-a-t’). What words do they make?
  • Clip a peg to the letter that makes the word match the picture.
  • Turn the card over to self-check the answer and to check if you read the other words correctly, too!
