NEW! CVC Peek-a-Boo Books!

I am gearing up for the fall and I have a little packet that I am going to introduce to help teach CVC words: CVC Peek-a-Boo Books!  One of the most common "problems" that occur when teaching CVC words is that students will sound out the first 2 letters and then guess on the last letter.

For example: You have the CVC word C-A-N and you are helping a student sound out the word.  It is very common for early readers to "assume" the ending sounds and sound out the /c/ and /a/ and then put a t at the end, making the word CAT.

These CVC Peek-a-Boo Books are a great way to isolate each sound and practice blending the words before revealing the picture/answer.  It is also LOTS of FUN!  I gave one to Sophia since she knows all her sounds.  She grabbed the book and plucked off each clothespin and sounded out the letters, but no blending happened today:)  She was so excited that she said, "Are these my printables?"  Then she grabbed more and ran away:)

This packet includes 42 CVC Peek-a-Boo Books and 42 matching CVC words with pictures. Using the Peek-a-Boo books helps eliminate guessing and encourages students to blend simple CVC letters to discover the hidden picture.

Here is how these books work:

Annie, these are just brilliant! I was just discussing this 'guessing of the final sound' in cvc words today with a special ed teacher who takes a couple of my kiddies....these could not have come at a better time! Just purchased them and can't wait to use them with my blossoms!! Thank you so much!! I also just love the fact that your little Sophia is so excited to have her own printables... that is just so cute!! Hugs ~ Tx
