When kids are learning to read there are so many fun ways to go about it. I know that my girls have always enjoyed hands-on learning as well as worksheets. We do like to mix it up.
Double consonant words are often called CVCC words. They are words that end with two consonant together. There are many of these words. There are some that have the same consonant together.
Today I have an activity for the double ll ending. It is a free baseball themed double ll sorting activity with a matching worksheet.
This is printable is a part of the Baseball Themed Week.
There are loads of activities you can do with a set of cards and worksheets. You can always mix up how you do them. Today’s printable has 15 sorting cards and a matching recording worksheet. This allows you to meet the needs of different kids.
There are 15 cards for kids to sort. They each end in the double “ll”. All the pictures are on baseballs.
There are 5 sorting mats with a catcher on each of the mats. The mats have the work ending the catch is looking for.
You are set up the sorting area like this. I put the mats at the top and the sorting cards at the bottom.
When all the cards are sorted each mat will have three cards. I like having them sort the cards before we do other things. We always say the word that we are sorting. So you would say fall when sorting the fall card.
After the cards are all sorting we record the words on the matching worksheet. The worksheet has 3 spaces to write in the three words for each double ll ending.
If you don’t want to use the mats and worksheets you can just play rhyming games with the cards. This is loads of fun to do.
Here are some additional ideas you can do with the cards:
- Get the CVCC Word ladders and make the words on the cards.
- Paste the picture on a writing paper and have them write a sentence using the word.
- Turn the cards over and play a matching game where you match all three word endings
- Put the cards on a ring and flip through and say the words.
- Play Old Maid with the cards
