CVC words exercises and Phono-Graphix

In my previous post about CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words I wrote about CVC word lists.

This time I would like to show you what are the other exercises Ania has done with these three-letter words.

The materials I am using are from Phono-Graphix reading method, but they can be easily made at home. Years ago I finished a course in this method and got certified as a reading therapist. While working in  a Montessori School in England I used Phono-Graphix to teach reading. Now I have pulled out my old materials to teach Ania.

Materials needed:
  • picture cards
  • letter cards
  • glue
  • pencil
  • notebook
Ania likes cutting with scissors so I let her cut the letters out by herself. 
She arranged the letters to form words corresponding with the pictures and glued them in her notebook. (Doing it in a special notebook instead of just a piece of paper, makes it look more important for the child).

Next exercise involved writing the words down.

On a different day I asked Ania to copy the words in upper and lower case letters and also to copy a sentence. She truly enjoyed it. Looks like my youngest one loves writing!
