CVC Word Fluency

You're about to learn all about one of my favorite warm-up activities – CVC Word Fluency.

Reading is becoming more and more important to Kindergarten expectations. Many states are moving automaticity to standard starting in Kindergarten.

This eBook has everything you need for to start building that skill.

I wrote this eBook to help you build literacy skills while working on 3 letter words.

This is the eBook for every Kindergarten teacher who has ever felt frustrated about reading, or is ready to start focusing on three letter words.

Many teachers are looking for quick and easy skill-based routines for their classrooms. I created this to help children build automaticity in reading with words that are common, predictable and already in their vocabulary.

This practice uses most letters. There are 50 words in all. If you make a slight modification, you can turn it into a flipbook – then the number of words is endless!

To use CVC Word Fluency Practice in your classroom, first, you will need to print all the pages.

Second, you will need to decide how you want to use the pages. If you want flash cards: laminate, cut and go! If you would prefer a book: laminate, cut and bind or staple.

Third, when it’s time to teach, have the student read each sound in the word or read the word without breaks in-between sounds. For example, if the word is “rat”, the reader could say /r/ /a/ /t/ or /rat/.

When the children are finished reading through the words, I always make sure I take a minute or two to check and see if there were any words we should review.

You can use this large group, small group or one-on-one. You could even make then for your children to keep in their book boxes! You are only limited by your creativity!

I have several of these books around my classroom in centers. They have made the children more independent when it comes to writing 3 letter words.

How did I start developing this eBook?

Well, when I came to Kindergarten I thought that I was going to teach arts, crafts, and play. I was not at all prepared for the high expectations put on my students.

I wanted to develop some quick, logical tools to help me teach reading.

One of the big struggles I saw was when it came to DIBLES. My students were not quick, confident or prepared for what they were being asked to do.

I started working with different ways to build three letter word skills.

Overtime, this flipbook turned into what I have today. A highly focused, standards based supplement that is easy to use and extremely fun.

Hang a CVC Word Fluency flipbook by your door and have students read while leaving the classrooom!

CVCe Word Fluency is the natural compliment to CVC Word Fluency. It follows the same streamlined format, and the highly focused, standards based supplement.
