In my classroom, I know there has never been such a thing as enough practice with CVC words. There are so many options out there and there is so much practice that my young students have needed. Besides, CVC word practice is so common there is a lot of fun that can be had. For instance, my latest obsession is with Boom Cards.
Boom Cards are interactive and fun for students. It feels like they’re playing a game on the computer, but really, they’re practicing! I have created a resource especially for you, your students, and their practice. Check out my Boom Cards CVC Words Mega Bundle for a great deal, or pick and choose what you need and buy one or two decks on the Boom Learning platform.
Letter Sounds to Reading
CVC words help students transition from letter-sound knowledge to reading. These short words allow students to really pay attention to the vowel sound at the center of the word. The more practice they get with those words, the more they will be able to read those words. Eventually, they won’t have to stop and sound each of those words out. This practice leads from just saying letter sounds to actually reading and comprehending what your students are reading!
If you are looking for even more great ideas for helping your students transition from letter sounds to reading words, I can help you out.

CVC Words Build Writing Confidence
With practice in reading and writing, students begin to hear more sounds and their writing becomes easier to decipher. Some of my absolute favorite moments in the classroom have been some of the most frustrating as well trying to understand exactly what my students have written or what they are trying to say. When your students use CVC words for kindergarten practice, your students will better learn how to write the same things they are reading in their practice.
CVC Words Build Math Confidence
Practice with CVC words is not limited to reading and writing! For example, in math, there will always be word problems. Your students need to know how to read them and how to understand what they say. Incorporate these words into your math word problems to build your students’ confidence in solving word problems. When they understand the question, they are halfway to solving the problem. For more great ideas, read my blog about CVC Word Problems!
