Spring has sprung and this mama is not sad about it at all. I love spring and look forward to spending so much time outside in between the rain showers. My daughter is looking forward to the rain so she can look for rainbows. She absolutely loves rainbows so I try to incorporate them into as many of our activities as I can, including these Rainbow CVC Word Puzzles.
*Pair with our Spring Centers & Activities for Pre-K/Kindergarten!
Rainbow CVC Word Puzzles
Like our Rainbow Addition Puzzles, we will be using these as part of our morning basket activities for April and May. My daughter is learning to read so incorporating fun activities like these puzzles has helped her become confident in reading CVC words.
Getting Ready to Play
These CVC puzzles are perfect for a math center in the home or classroom and are very easy to setup. They also make an awesome morning work or early finisher activity.
To begin, print, laminate, and cut out around the whole puzzle.
Next, cut them along the dotted line in the center so that you have two pieces.
This free printable includes 20 CVC word puzzles. There are 4 puzzles for each of the medial vowel sounds.
How to Play
I like to use small baskets or grab bags for these types of activities. You can place the puzzle pieces in a basket or a small drawstring bag and have children choose a puzzle piece and then choose a second puzzle piece. This gives them the excitement and mystery of what puzzle piece will they grab next
Students will pick a CVC word card and say the word. Then they will find the corresponding picture card and put the puzzle together.

Students will continue matching the CVC words and pictures together until they have all been matched.
You can give students all 20 puzzles at one time or you can split them up into smaller groups. For instance, if you have been talking about short “a” words, you can give students only the short “a” puzzle cards. Or you might choose to give them half of the puzzles instead of all 20.
Once all of the puzzles are matched, write the CVC words on a piece of paper to get some additional practice spelling CVC words.
