The Varnett School- Northeast

Students play word games

First-graders at the Northeast Campus display their work of matching pictures with consonant-vowel-consonant (CVC) word families, for example, hat and cat.
 
These are considered the simplest words and the starting point of many phonics programs. For example, CVC words allowing children to practice combining individual letter sounds together to create meaningful words.

The students have  been working on building and blending CVC since the first week of school. This assignment helped with identifying rhyming words as well. It is one of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) requirements  to cover in the first six weeks of school.
 
Each group created an anchor chart that was displayed in the classroom, giving students an opportunity to refer back to the charts when needed.
