More Fun With CVC Words
As promised, here is another creative way to get CVC words into your students' heads! Play BINGO with them. I’ve made up 9 sets of word cards with 20 different cards in each set, using 225 CVC words.
Here’s what to do:
Run each set off on a DIFFERENT color of construction paper. This way you can tell that those color cards deal with a specific set of 25 words.
To give your cards more pizzazz, add a star or smilie sticker to the center “free” space. The stickers you choose for each set could also vary.
Laminate and cut out the cards.
Make an extra white set to cut into pieces.
There are 25 words per set. Because of the FREE space, there are only 24 words used on each card.
Glue the white pieces onto the matching color construction paper for each set of CVC Bingo cards.
These pieces will be the cards that you draw so that students can put their “markers” on their bingo cards.
Keep the pieces in Snack Baggies.
Put the matching Snack Baggie in a file folder with the matching set of CVC bingo cards.
Each week play with a different set of words.
Dried beans are an inexpensive “marker”.
Other fun things to do with the cards:
Run off an individual page (two cards per page) to send home with each child so they can play at home with a parent.
Child can cut up one card and play with the other. The object here is simply to look for the word and put a marker on it, filling up their entire card as a great review of those words.
Another fun game to use the cards with:
Play “Cover & Match”. Run off a set of words on two different colors of copy paper.
Laminate the paper and cut out the words.
Put the set of colors in two different Snack Baggies.
Children choose a partner and take turns rolling a dice.
If they roll an even number they get to take a CVC word tile out of their bag, read it and find the matching word on their bingo card, which they cover with the tile.
If they roll an odd number they lose their turn.You could also play that if they roll an even number they get to place 2 CVC word tiles on their bingo card. If they roll and odd number, they get to place 1 CVC word tile on their bingo card.
To make things even more interesting, you could add that if students roll a 6, they have to remove 1 of their CVC word tiles from their Bingo card.
Top it all off by awarding certificates. I've included 2 kinds.

I design a lot of things around what my readers and subscribers need help with, that's why I went to work on CVC words, so if there is something you've been searching for, or need help with, feel free to contact me about that too!
Fun Things To Do With CVC Words
Several of my subscribers asked me to design some things involving CVC words.
The first thing I wanted to do was compile a list of CVC words.
CVC Helper Books:
I wanted to come up with at least 100 words, but once I was on a roll the list topped 300!
They are in an alphabetical list entitled 338 CVC Words complete with traceable word cards, 21 letter cards, a student’s personal word checklist and a certificate of praise.

I thought it would be fun to make picture cards for as many of the CVC words that I thought would appropriately trigger a response from a child, so CVC Picture-Word Cards was born.
Students can play Memory Match games with them, a “Flip” card game and “Go Gar” (Go Fish). They also make an adorable Itty Bitty Booklet of CVC Words.
Directions, tips, and a certificate of praise are also included with the 87 picture cards and 79 word cards.

Have your students become ABCDe-tectives:
Because my Y5’s LOVE becoming ABCDe-tectives, and searching for words, I made CVC Word Finds as yet another enjoyable way of reinforcing CVC words. Click on the link to see this fun-filled 35-page book complete with and ABCDet-ective CVC certificate of praise.
Word Scramblers is another way my students continue their detective roll. This CVC book has 19 skill sheets where the letters are mixed up.
Students enjoy unscrambling them. Click on the link to take a look at this interesting way for your students to have fun learning CVC words.
Keeping with the detective theme, children enjoy de-coding the “secret” letters by solving the number codes that reveal a CVC word. There are 56 words in this “way cool” CVC De-Coder Skill Sheet Book. Click on the link to take a look.
Read & Write CVC Word Sentences:
If you want to work on reading and writing skills along with CVC word recognition, then CVC Reading and Writing with 70 simple sentences, using 140 CVC words, including “write a sentence using a word bank”, is something you’ll want to check out.
I also have 2 fun CVC skill sheet booklets available as well. CVC Volume I has students fill in a CVC word to match the picture. Click on the link to view/print a copy.
CVC Volume II has students match the word to the picture. Click on the link to see a copy.
Finally, if you’d like to build vocabulary and stretch your students CVC word bank, I’ve made up a list of unique and unusual CVC words that your students might not be familiar with.
This book includes a checklist, 136 word cards and definitions. Who knows, there might be a few on here that may be new to you as well!
