CVC Frog Leap pads

CVC Frog Leap pads

Use these Lily pads to practise CVC fluency. Print the lily pads onto green paper (or any color you choose). Pin the ‘-at’ to a frog stuffed toy. If you don’t have a frog stuffed toy, print the frog included at the end of this product and ‘stick’ the ‘-at’ to it. All five short vowel sounds have been included in this product. Lay the lily pads on the table and students take turns springing from one ‘–at’ lily pad to the next, reading the words as they go. They can then record the ‘-at’ words on a white board should you wish to practice their writing as well as reading. Pin a new sound combination to your frog once your students have grasped –at. Students at different tables can also be practising different sounds and then move from table to table. Visit my blog Learning with Sunflower Smiles to see how I used them.

CVC Sentence Reading Cards

CVC Sentence Reading Cards

CVC Sentence Reading Cards This set of 96 task cards is the perfect activity for children who are ready to read their CVC words in sentences. Students read each of the two sentences on the card and indicate which sentence is true by placing a mark in the correct box on the right hand side of the card (use a dry wipe marker on a laminated card to make them reusable) , or by placing a peg to indicate the correct option. This set has been divided into four sections. The sections have been determined by the sight words used in each group. Below you can see which sight words are used in each section (words are : Orange: the, on, it, is, in, red, I, a, and, am. Green: like, and, to, for, has, go, see, blue, he, she. Blue: then, them, will, with , put, at, one. Yellow, my, by, come, this, look, you, up, two. I would recommend starting with the orange section and moving to the green, then blue and finally yellow as progression takes place and sight words from the orange section may be present in all the sections. I trust your children will enjoy this activity.
