Step Towards Reading And Writing: CVC Words
Jo and Lisa, Early Years Professionals
Sticker Chart
Do you know what teachers mean when they say children can blend and segment CVC words?

CVC words are simple words made up of a consonant, vowel, consonant eg: c-a-t, d-o-g.

Children need to be able to orally blend and segment before they start to read and write words, this simply means that they can hear and say the sounds in words.

To make learning FUN there are lots of games you can play to encourage these skills.

Play CVC I spy. Place CVC picture cards on the table, then take turns to say “I spy with my little eye something with the sounds c-a-t” Whoever identifies the object wins the card.

Incorporate Robot games by speaking like a robot into everyday activities: “Put on your h-a-t. Put on your c-oa-t. Put on your b-oo-ts”

Segmenting word songs sung to the tune of ‘Here we go round the Mulberry bush.’ Choose a CVC picture card from a pile and sing. ‘This is the way we make the word cat, make the word cat, make the word cat. This is the way we make the word cat, ……… C A T!’

Play the Tom and Pom board game orally segmenting each word as a player lands on the picture.

These are just some ideas from our Letters and Sounds box which contains CVC picture cards that can be used in these games.

Always Remember:

It is important that you progress at the rate set by your child

Little and often at these early stages is always best

Involve the whole family

Any reluctance may indicate that a child is not developmentally ready for a stage and so wait until they are ready

Make activities fun by incorporating the learning into games, treasure hunts, sound walks etc

Praise every attempt, effort and achievement however small!!

Whatever your view on the use of sticker charts with young children you will love our Tom and Pom version in the Letters and Sounds box.

The chart is bright and colourful and features both of our lovable characters. It breaks down learning to read and write into easily achievable steps to enable parents to understand what skills children need to master. It allows children to track their progress and feel a real sense of achievement!
