Looking for a way for students to practice alternate spellings of common sounds like /ae/ or /er/? Spin, Read & Write phonics games are just what you need.
From games to worksheets to cootie catchers, I’m always looking for new ways to teach CVC words. Here’s a round-up of activities to use to teach CVC words.
You can have the most creative and engaging activities. Students can love them, but if student phonics progress isn’t happening, something needs to change.
It’s exciting to see kids start to take off with reading. I often start off in the classroom with CVC words playing I Spy, which is easily adapted for home.
There’s so much to teach when it comes to literacy. So having a slew of literacy activities and games makes the teaching of literacy so much easier.
The obvious reason to use spelling games is that kids love games. But they also give them a chance to spell and check their words, often multiple times.
Spelling and segmenting go hand in hand. Practicing how to separate and identify sounds helps students grasp how sounds and letters work together.
I like to keep teaching alternate spelling simple and fun by using a clear introduction and building skills
through practice with activities and games.
I like to encourage my students to use higher-order thinking in my classroom. That’s why my spelling center is designed around the Three-Story Intellect.
