Pumpkin CVC Clip Cards
Grab these pumpkin-themed clip cards to help your students practice their reading skills. The students will practice sounding out the word and clipping a clothespin to match the picture.
CVC words are so important for kindergarten students to master. They play a vital role in later literacy skills and can be beneficial for struggling readers to practice. CVC words are simple to sound out because they follow the basic English rules. The vowels are always in the middle of the words, making the short sound in their word.
The download includes 24 CVC word cards from various CVC word families. You will need to gather some clothespins or other clips for the students to clip to the picture that matches the word. I like these because they are colorful and smaller in size, just right for little learners.
Quick to Assemble
These pumpkin clip cards are so easy to get ready for your students and won’t take long to have a few sets made for your word work stations or literacy centers.
Once you download the free resource, you will print the clip cards in black or white or color. Then, cut them apart and laminate them for durability. Store in a large bag or tray with the clothespins, and you are ready to go.
All five short vowel sounds have words included in the bundle. The pictures are easy to distinguish, and young students will have no problem knowing what they are.
