Can you believe that we are starting another year? If you are like me, teaching in January is time to hunker down and help our students work on their literacy skills. Today we are focusing on CVC words.

What are CVC words?

Simply put, a CVC word  is composed of a consonant, vowel, and consonant sound. An example of one of these words would be hut. Each letter makes a sound and is therefore easy for young readers to sound out.

You can find out more about CVC words and why we teach them here.

How to Use Our Color By Code Worksheets

Each student will need a copy of the coloring sheet and crayons or colored pencils. It is helpful for them to color the crayons first. This helps them figure out which colors they will need and highlights what color is used for each CVC word. Students will find it helpful to put away the colors that are not being used.

Demonstrate how to color the picture one area at a time. Invite Kinders to read the word in the area and locate that word in the key. This will tell them what color to use. Any areas with no word should be left white. Encourage children to color the section carefully and this is one time when it is good to stay inside the lines!

Children will color the picture one area at a time until the whole pictures I colored. They will then be able to see the hidden picture. Obviously, this is an activity that can be done over time. It is not necessary to complete the picture in one sitting unless the students want to do that.
