Last week my class was completing opinion writing and writing about their favorite animals. Almost my entire class wrote about unicorns. I almost didn't have he heart to tell them that unicorns actually don't exist. Unicorn believer or not, I knew I hate to incorporate some fun unicorn activities to my word work. Since many of my students are working on blending CVC words, I made activities that reinforce that skill.
Students spin the spinner and try to create real CVC words by matching it with a beginning sound!
Students try to find the correct spelling for the word on the card. This activity focuses on differentiating between vowel sounds.
Students differentiate between real and nonsense words!
Students build CVC words using any letter manipulative.
