What is a CVC Word?
A CVC word is a consonant vowel consonant word. They are words like cat, pan, hen, pig, dog, and nut.
They are words that you can sound out each letter and then blend the letter sounds to make the word.
These words are some of the first words that kids learn to sound out. Each learning systems has a way they teach them.
BOB Books books are great examples of building word sounds.
Each i-spy CVC short vowel worksheet has 8 words for them to find. And all the pictures on the page also match the same short vowel sound.
