CVC words are part of our Fundations  programs. CVC words are consonant-vowel-consonant words. To read CVC words, the kids are taught something called "tapping and blending." When we tap the word, we look at the word and we simply say the 3 sounds. After we say the 3 sounds we quickly blend the sounds together to read the word. Below are some CVC words that you can write for your child and have him/her tap and blend. After tapping and blending, ask your child to use the word in a sentence.
