Blending Three Letter Short Vowel Words

Word puzzles (Match It Spelling by the Learning Journey), magnetic letters, and letter cards provide children practice with blending, making, reading and writing short vowel words.
CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) words.  Practice the introduction activities below to help children build the skill level needed to blend words - placing the letters such as /d/+/o/+/g/ in the correct order to make the word dog.
Choose a simple CVC word. Place the three letters of the word in order.  Say each letter and the sound that represents each letter with children.  Next, provide several pictures and/or magnetic shapes that begin with one of the three letters.  Have children sort the pictures under the correct beginning letter/sound.  D is for duck, dog, dog, and donkey.  O is for octopus, on, and off.  G is for gumballs, girl, and goat. It is important to have children hear the short vowel sound /o/.  Short vowel sounds are the most difficult to hear and recognize.  Hearing and identifying the correct vowel sound is crucial in reading CVC words.
Have children sort the pictures under the correct beginning letter/sound.  C is for cow, camel, cat, and carrot.  A is for apple, ant, and alligator.  T is for tiger, turtle, top, and taco. It is important to have children hear the short vowel sound /a/.  Short vowel sounds are the most difficult to hear and recognize.  Hearing and identifying the correct vowel sound is crucial in reading CVC words.
Have children sort the pictures under the correct beginning letter/sound.  P is for pizza and pencil.  I is for igloo, and in.  G is for guitar, girl and goldfish. It is important to have children hear the short vowel sound /i/.  Short vowel sounds are the most difficult to hear and recognize.  Hearing and identifying the correct vowel sound is crucial in reading CVC words.

B is for buttons, bee and big.  U is for umbrella, and up.  S is for snake and skate. It is important to have children hear the short vowel sound /u/.



Choose picture cards of words already practiced and have children place the clothespin on the beginning letter/sound of the word.  Next have children place the clothespin on the ending letter/sound.  Cards can be purchased at Target in the $1.00 bin.

Provide word puzzles, letter cards, magnetic letters, and have children blend, read and write CVC words correctly.
