CVC Word List – Short u words
These CVC words with pictures are so versatile. They are perfect for your word wall or as flash cards. I like to punch a hole in the top corner and put them on a ring for use in literacy centers and to keep them neat and tidy.
This activity can be used in a number of ways to practice short vowel sounds. I like to laminate these cards so they last longer and can be written on with a dry erase marker. Magnetic letters can also be used to complete the activity.
Read and Peek
Children love this fun, self correcting activity. Students can read the CVC word and then check by peeking at the CVC picture behind the flap.
