Is your child having trouble hearing the middle sound in CVC short vowel words? Try these free clip cards!
My four-year-old is working on reading CVC words. Recently, it clicked! I created these CVC vowel clip cards to help him listen for the sound in the middle of the words.
I figured the cards would be no problem at all, and was creating them more for your use than ours.
I was surprised that these were a bit of a challenge! Yay – we get to use them after all. 🙂
Listening closely for that middle sound – and then identifying the letter that made it – really made him think.
Have you heard of phonological awareness? It’s super important for kids to have, and it encompasses a variety of skills. One of these skills is the ability to identify sounds in words. These CVC vowel clip cards are great for that!
Plus, these cards are helping him develop his spelling ability. It’s been so fun to see him write during his play time… and include those middle vowels! It’s a big step into letter name alphabetic spelling stage. So exciting! (And if I just lost you there, you can read about the stages of spelling here.)
I hope you can use these clip cards at home or in the classroom!
