Here are 4 sets of easy-to-print CVC flashcards! These cards are suitable for beginning readers of any age who need practice decoding letter sounds and blending them together.Wait, what are CVC words? you might be asking. They are words that follow the consonant-vowel-consonant pattern and have short vowel sounds.After students have learned the individual sounds of the letters of the English alphabet, your next step is to teach your class to put those sounds together. Usually CVC words are the first words to teach when introducing reading by phonics.How quickly or slowly you teach English phonics will depend on whether your students can already read in their native language and whether Language 1 is phonetic, uses the roman alphabet, reads left-to-right, etc.Most of the words in the sets below are 3-letter CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words, with just a few 4-letter words mixed in (CCVC and CVCC). All of the words have short vowel sounds. Each set progressively adds more letters and sounds to decode.When making these sets I’ve tried to choose vocabulary words that will be familiar to young ESL students. However, for the sake of reading practice I’ve included some words that will probably be new. These words cards do not have pictures, so to teach the meaning of the words you will have to draw and mime. Of course that’s the fun part!With very young learners, pick out only the nouns and present tense verbs from this list, such as: ant and pan, pat and sit. Who wants to mime “it”? 🙂 A great first set of phonics cards to use when introducing phonics and reading to ESL students. This set uses only six letters: s, a, t, p, i, n. If you’re familiar with Jolly Phonics, these are known as ‘Group 1’ words.These six letters give beginning readers a lot of words to decode without having to master the entire alphabet. Also, these letters have distinctly different shapes (no confusing pairs like b and d, for example), making it easier for learners to work out the sounds.Note: Of the 23 words in this set, 5 words have consonant blends. Omit the blends if your class is just starting out.Download CVC Words Set 1Word list: at, in, it, ant, nap, pan, pat, pip, pit, sap, sat, sit, sin, sip, tan, tap, tin, tip, pant, snap, snip, spin, spat. Building on CVC Words Set 1, this card set adds seven more letters to practice blending simple words with c, k, e, h, r, m, d. These are ‘Group 2’ words if you are using Jolly Phonics. With Sets 1 and 2 you will be practicing 13 letters total. Your students will be able to read over 60 words using only half the alphabet!Download CVC Words Set 2Word list: can, cap, cat, did, dip, had, ham, hat, hen, hid, him, hip, hit, kid, mad, man, map, mat, men, met, pen, pet, ram, ran, rat, red, rip, sad, set, ten, camp, damp, dent, hand, hint, kept, mend, melt, mint, mist, rest, risk, sent, step. CVC Words 3 adds six more letters to those in the first two CVC word card sets. The Jolly Phonics materials refer to these as ‘Group 3’ words. The following letters make up this set: s a t p i n (Set 1) + c k e h r m d (Set 2) + g o u l f b (Set 3)Download CVC Words Set 3Word list: can, cap, cat, did, dip, had, ham, hat, hen, hid, him, hip, hit, kid, mad, man, map, mat, men, met, pen, pet, ram, ran, rat, red, rip, sad, set, ten, camp, damp, dent, hand, hint, kept, mend, melt, mint, mist, rest, risk, sent, step.
