The weather around here is still very much winter; however, this mama is so very excited for spring and warmer weather activities. I have been dreaming about all the spring fun we will soon be having. One of the things I am really looking forward to doing with my little ones this year is flying kites. We live in a forest of trees so we can’t fly kites in our backyard, but I have been scoping out the perfect spot for us to take our kites and fly them and I can’t wait. To tie us over until the weather is kite flying weather, I created this free Kite CVC Word Sorting Activity!
*Pair with our Spring Centers and Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!
Kite CVC Word Sorting Activity
It is very important that children have phonological awareness skills. One of these skills is being able to identify sounds in words. This medial vowel sound sorting activity is great for literacy centers and guided reading activities for beginning readers.
How to Prep
To get started, print and laminate the vowel kites and all of the kite tails.
To add a fine motor component to this activity you can attach each of the kite tail pieces to a clothespin. To attach them to clothespins, use a dab of hot glue or a piece of tape.
How to Play
Lay out your vowel sound kites. You can lay them out in alphabetical order or mix them up.
Place all of the kite tail pieces in a basket or pile. There are four kite tails for each vowel sound, two green and two pink.
Students will pick a kite tail, say the name of the picture on the card, and isolate the sounds in the word in order to identify the vowel sound.

Once the vowel sound is identified, students will add it to the string coming off of the correct vowel kite. Continue sorting kite tails until they have all been sorted.
Students can use the recording sheet to record the vowel sounds as they add a tail to the kite or the recording sheet can be used as additional independent practice for vowel sound identification.
This Kite CVC Word Sort will add tons of spring-themed learning fun to your literacy centers!
