Apple CVC Word Literacy Activity for Early Readers
To use this apple CVC word literacy activity, you’ll need the following: (This post contains affiliate links. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
- Printer (with ink)
- Printer paper
- Lacing alphabet letters
- Pipe cleaners
- A copy of our Apple CVC Word Cards (link at the bottom of post)
It only takes a few minutes to set up this literacy activity.
Start by cutting apart the Apple CVC word cards.
Afterwards, pull out a few pipe cleaners and let students find the matching lacing letters for each word.
They can pull a CVC word card and then lace the letters onto pipe cleaners to spell out each word.
After students are comfortable spelling out the words, use different color lacing letters to highlight separate phonetic sounds.
Isolate the vowel sound by using a certain color for the middle vowel letters.
Then practice identifying beginning and ending sounds with different color letters too!
This is a fantastic way to incorporate fine motor skills along with literacy in a fun fall theme!
