Items: Words with the CVC pattern

What to do

  1. Begin the activity by reading Dr. Seuss's Fox in Socks to your students.
  2. Select several CVC-pattern words from the book to use for demonstration.
  3. Say the word fox and have students write this word on their dry erase boards.
  4. Now explain to students that they are going to change words by substituting one letter sound at the beginning, middle, or end of the word. Model by changing fox to box. Students should now blend the new word. Take away the x in box, add a p, and you have bop. Take away the b, add an m, and you have mop. Substitute the a for o and you have map.
  5. Continue using more CVC words from the book and add other words as needed. You may wish to reflect on your class's progress in an Activity Log.
