Learning to read is so exciting! After unlocking letters and sounds, a huge part of learning to read is blending and reading CVC words fluently. These CVC Word Family Phonics Poems are perfect for beginning readers to build their confidence and excitement for reading! They contain decodable text along with high-frequency words for students to practice fluency and rhyming and are aligned with the best practices of the Science of Reading.
CVC Word Family Phonics Poems
These CVC phonics poems are just the right length for little readers. They are especially great for those who love to rhyme but perhaps don’t have a lot of stamina yet when it comes to reading.
The short and simple rhymes tell a fun story, and there is a fun matching picture to color!
With 23 options, no matter what small group I am working with or what word family I am focusing on – there is likely a poem for it!
This pack even includes a “Digital Ease” version, where you can choose which poem to upload/assign directly in Seesaw™, Google Classroom™, etc!
The following word families are included in this phonics poems pack:
- short a: -at, -am, -ap, -an, -ag, -ad
- short e: -et, -en, -ed
- short i: -it, -in, -ip, -ig, -id,
- short o: -ot, -op, -ob, -og
- short u: -ut, -ub, -um, -ug, -ut
Ways to Use These Phonics Poems
How you use the poems is entirely up to you! You can have students read the poem and then send it home, or you can save them for repeated use in your small groups.
Each poem focuses on a specific word family indicated in the bottom corner. The students can go through and highlight the word families with a crayon or marker. As an extension or extra challenge, they can write the words that they find.
Another option is to create a book of poems for your students. Simply get an inexpensive binder for each kiddo, and as they can successfully read each poem, add it to their binder.
Place the binders somewhere easily accessible to your students. They can pull them out to read during independent reading time or if they finish their work early!
Most importantly, the poems never fall out or get lost this way. Then, it makes a really nice fluency binder to send home with the kids at the end of the year!
