CVC Words Worksheets
Related ELA Standard: RF.K.2
If you find a word that follows the pattern of having a consonant followed by a vowel which is further followed by another consonant, we call this a CVC word. Some common examples are the words: pan, sad, gas, den, and leg. Many people think this classification only applies to three-letter words, but words with consonant chunks apply as well. For example: shack, cash, and bell are seen as CVC words as well. This is the first time that sounds actually become more brilliant to hear. Making the transition to being able to sound out some real juicy words is often difficult for pre-readers. We show you some strategy that are sure to help. These worksheets will introduce students to CVC words and use the phonetical advantage it gives them towards spelling and reading.

What Are CVC Words?
CVC words are Consonant, Vowel and Consonant. So a CVC word is a term that is comprised of a consonant sound, vowel sound and consonant sound in quick succession. For instance, cat, box and web are examples of CVC words. As you can see in each of those three words, there is a consonant followed by a vowel, which this then followed by another consonant.
Another example is that of shop, doll and sheep. CVC words are typically some of the earliest words that children learn when they begin learning how to read and write. They use the basic letter sounds primarily when they are grasping the idea of phonics.
CVC words are essential for children who are at the pre-reading stage. These words are vital for children who are in kindergarten. In fact, at this stage kids are taking baby steps in learning the letter sounds and how to speak simple words.
The primary stage of reading at this stage is comprised of only CVC words in a bid to allow children to have a firm grasp on the letter sound. CVC words also easy to sound out and generally contain a short vowel sound too.
When children are taught these concepts, they are also exposed to CCVC AND CVCC terms as well. These are part of their activities when they are in school and are quite similar to CVC words. The main difference is that the former begin and end with simplistic letter blends. An example is the word bend, which ends with the word 'nd'.
Consonant vowel consonants are essential because they can be rewarding for children to work with. Students can experience and grasp the transformation of simple sounds and interpret these into words. CVC words are also imperative as they enable children to unlock their skills and understand the English language even better at a nascent stage.
