CVC Word Craftivities
Your students will LOVE Wisicigi (wa-sa-sig-ee) Time + it really helps get CVC and word wall words into their heads!
This is a great activity to plug in for a writing center or for your Daily 5 too.
Wisicigi comes from wi(write it) si(stamp it) ci(cut it out) and gi(glue it).
Make a copy of my WOW (Wonderful Outstanding Word) poster and hang it up so that you can post what the WOW’s are for the day.
Depending on the level of your students, choose from 1-3 words for them to work on.
The one pictured has a spring theme to it.
Make copies of the WOW wisicigi sheet.
Run off the alphabet sheets on a variety of colored copy paper.
Students cut out the letters and glue them on their papers to spell the words like a ransom note.
Keep recycling the sheets ‘til all of the letters are used up. I keep mine in a file folder.
I made the cute alphabet sheet with a free font from Kevin and Amanda’s free scrapbook fonts site. Check them out for other cool fonts.
Students write their words in colored pencils, markers or crayons.
Children stamp the words with alphabet stamps and different colored stamp pads.
I got my alphabet sticks from Discount School Supply.
I really like that they are a “stick”, as it’s easy for the children to hold.
Unfortunately, they no longer sell the lowercase letters, only the uppercase ones. They are $26.99.

When students have completed their WOW sheet they use the words in a sentence and write it on the bottom.
I use a different color marker to write the WOW words, than the other ones in my sentence so they “pop”.
Challenge students to see who can write the shortest sentence using the least amount of words.
These sheets make a great home-school connection so parents know what words to work on with their child.
When you make WOW’s a part of your daily routine, students are empowered, as they know what to do and get down to business.
They are having fun and will be learning CVC and word wall words in no time.
Teachers are freed up to help ESL and struggling students one-on-one. Such a nice win-win!
