Egg Carton CVC Words! Ages 4+

This game is great for working on letter sounds and blending sounds. Kysen has been working on reading CVC words.  He put a yellow letter(vowel) in the middle and orange letters (consonants) on each side.  Then we practiced reading the words.

It’s also okay if it’s a nonsense word. Reading nonsense words helps build confidence with decoding. Decoding occurs when a student uses his or her knowledge of letter-sound relationships to accurately read a word.
