Description

These Caterpillar CVC Words Puzzles allow students to practice segmenting and blending consonant-vowel-consonant words independently. Perfect for a spring literacy center, these CVC puzzles can be differentiated and include recording sheets and answer cards for students to check their work.

Each puzzle has a color-coded border to aid in organization and clean-up. These puzzles can be stored in baggies or envelopes labeled by set. This set is designed to help you differentiate! Some students may need to complete only one set at a time, while others may be ready to work with two or more sets mixed together.

What does this Caterpillar CVC Puzzles set include?

When you download this file, you’ll find eight CVC word puzzles for each of the five short vowels. This set also includes picture strips for self-checking (optional), recording sheets, and a real/nonsense word sorting page.

Here’s a breakdown of the puzzles:

🔵 Short A: Blue – This set includes eight puzzles with picture clues, a recording sheet, & answer strip

🟠 Mixed Practice: Orange – This set includes all of the words in the above set plus several additional words but has no picture clues. This set is for students to build their own words. They can record their words on a general recording sheet or a real/nonsense word sorting sheet.

Some teachers may wish to teach their students to check their own work using the answer strips. These can also be helpful for emergent readers to use as a model.

 

How can I use these Caterpillar CVC Puzzles in my classroom?

Prepare these caterpillar CVC puzzles by printing them on cardstock, laminating them, and cutting them apart. The puzzles can be stored in zip-top plastic bags or other small container. Print the labels, which can be taped to the storage containers with clear tape, and sort the color-coded puzzles. If you wish to have your students use the included answer strips to check their work, print and laminate those, as well.

Students can work on these puzzles independently or in small groups at a literacy center. You can also use them for guided practice during small group instruction.

 

What Teachers Are Saying About These Caterpillar CVC Puzzles:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “These puzzle cards and worksheets are so fun! My students love working with them! We started with each middle vowel group but have moved on to mixing them up so students can identify the correct middle vowel sound. I love that the worksheets can be used for this. This product is great for students who love hands-on learning. I would highly recommend for ELLs or RTI too. ” -Cassidy G.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “My students have loved using this. We started off by sorting just the short a one day, then e, then i, then o, and then u. Now that we sorted each letter separately, we are mixed altogether and sorting based on word and letter. I like that they are color-coded, so they are self-correcting. The students also enjoy the different colors.” -Jennifer S.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I love activities with recording sheets, but most of all, I love when they are already differentiated. This is a perfect time to use these during our butterfly unit. Thank you for making the activities fit the needs in my classroom and providing recording sheets.” -Jodi C.
