This is another free resource for teachers and homeschool families from www.freewordwork.com.
This new, free collection of four CVC phonics readers will help your children read simple texts with an emphasis on short a words.
What are CVC Words?
If you are new to phonics instruction, start here! If you already know the basics, scroll to the bottom to download your free booklets.
CVC stands for consonant vowel consonant. These are three letter words. They will have a short vowel sound in the middle.
You will often hear the terms short a, short e, short i, short o and short u when teachers are talking about word work.
This specific set of books focuses on short a words. This means that many of the words in these readers will have a consonant, a and then a final consonant.
About these CVC Phonics Readers
These mini readers contain beginning sight words along with short a words. The result is simple, repetitive texts that are good for beginning readers.
Along with the simple sentences at the top, children will find illustrations to color.
At the bottom of each page, there are directions to encourage children to process and interact with the text.
For example, in the Rainbow Cat booklet, children will color the cat according to the color word given. Students will then circle the color word in the text.
These extra steps will help children work on following directions and comprehending what is being read.
This CVC Phonics Reader set contains four titles.
