Learning to read and write isn’t easy, but it certainly doesn’t have to be boring! We are all about making learning fun, and our writing center is always a go-to area in the classroom because the kids love the changing themes while knowing the expectations and activities. These CVC Phonics Writing Activities for Kindergarten reinforce important literacy skills while encouraging movement as kids get up out of their seats to “write the room!”
CVC Phonics Writing Activities for Kindergarten
This CVC activity pack includes 40 word cards (8 words for each short vowel) with recording sheets. Each card also has a fun picture clue on it. Before cutting apart the word cards, be sure to laminate them so they are durable and reusable!
You get to choose which short vowel your students are working on in the writing center – short a, e, i, o, or u!
Ways to Use the CVC Writing Activities
“Write the Room” activities are a favorite in our classroom because it means the kids can get up and move while still building reading and writing skills!
When using this activity as a CVC “Write the Room,” I start by choosing which vowel I want the students to work on and posting the word cards all around the room. Then the kids walk around with the recording sheet on a clipboard, labeling the pictures as they find them.
You can also choose to have one set of students hide the cards around the room while the other kids search for them and write the words. When they are done, they can switch so each student gets a turn to “hide” and “seek!”
This activity can also be used as a CVC literacy center! Simply place the vocabulary cards in a small basket or add them to a sensory bin for even more hands-on learning fun!
For this version of play, students pick a card from the basket or bin and write the word.
Teacher Tip: Make this a reusable activity by adding the recording sheets to a dry erase pocket sleeve. The kids can write the words with dry erase markers, erase, and write again for tons of CVC phonics fun!
Differentiated Recording Sheets
The recording sheets can be used multiple ways to meet the needs of all your students. Each recording sheet comes with a front page with five empty boxes where kids can pick a card and label the pictures. Print double-sided for extra writing practice!
There are two options for the back page. The first option includes 3 additional pictures for students to label and a pre-written sentence that they can trace.
The second option includes 3 pictures for labeling and blank lines. Students ready for an extra challenge can choose a word from the page and write their very own simple sentence.
This is a great way to inspire confidence and creativity!
Plus, at the end of the file, all of the CVC word cards also come in black and white. Perfect for an ink-saving option!
