Hands-On Learning With CVCC Word Family Puzzles: Short A

Puzzles have been a favorite at our house for ages! We are always using them for something. We have loved the CVC puzzles and how we have the CVCC puzzles.

I love how puzzles are a word building activity for kids. They make spelling a hands-on activity for them. I use these a lot with the CVCC Word family Cards.

Today we are starting with some of the CVCC word family short “a” puzzles.

Each puzzle has four letters from the words and picture that matches the word. These are easy to use three piece puzzles. I recommend laminating them if you are going to use the often. This will make the puzzles last longer.

They are meant to be great for some easy hands-on learning of the words. I like to mix up how we use them, but often we just work on one word family ending at a time. We started with all the “-all” words and then did others.

After we had done the puzzles, I often have them do an activity with matching the lowercase lacing letters to the puzzle. You can place the letters right below the words. I like that the lowercase lacing letterss match up to the lowercase letters on the puzzle.
