Today, I’m teaming up with Alecia from No Stress Homeschooling to bring you the first of a series of free CVC worksheets to help you teach your child to read!
While 3 part cards and worksheets can be done in the Montessori way, most often the free worksheets are far from the Montessori way and purchasing the worksheets can become very expensive — in addition to all of the hands-on work that you want to provide.
These CVC worksheets are not a traditional Montessori material, but they use Montessori concepts to teach children how to read CVC words using three-part cards and a set of fill-in-the-blank cards.
The three part cards consists of two sets of cards, or 3 parts. The first set show the image and CVC word on one card (part) and then provide a second set of matching cards with the image and CVC word on separate parts.
The fill-in-the-black cards are missing the vowel. This is a great way to ensure that your child is recognizing the different vowel sounds, and encourage them to practice this knowledge.
I recommend laminating your cards to get the most use out of them and make the experience of using them more satisfying for children. I use this laminator and purchase my laminating sheets in bulk to save money.
The M CVC words that these CVC worksheets cover are:
The only m cvc word missing from this set is “mob” because we couldn’t find an image of a mob that was appropriate for children — but if you have any suggestions for improving these cvc worksheets please let me know. We will be sharing free worksheets for all of the CVC word families.
Also, this set of m cvc worksheets make use of clip art (cartoonish images) rather than real pictures so that we could keep them free. As the focus is on teaching the CVC word and not scientific (learning parts of a plant, etc) this doesn’t really matter much. (I’d rather put my money towards purchasing real flower images or detailed anatomical sketches for our other free printables).
