Attention teachers! Have you been searching for the perfect tool to help teach your students how to learn CVC words? Look no further because we have just the thing! Our CVC Orthographic Mapping Slideshow is the ultimate tool to help your students learn and remember these important words. With our PowerPoint and Google Slides options, you can easily incorporate this tool into your lesson plans and ensure that your whole class is engaged and participating.
Breaking down the process of introducing a new word has never been easier. Follow our five simple steps to teach each word:
1. Introduce the New Word
Start by introducing the word using the picture to the students. This visual aid will help them connect the word to its meaning.
2. Tap the Sounds
Next, it’s time to tap the sounds. Encourage your students to listen carefully to each of the sounds in the word and tap along as they hear them. This will help them isolate individual sounds and develop their phonemic awareness.
3. Push the Sounds
After tapping, it’s time to push the sounds. This means blending the sounds together to form the whole word. Fun fact: pushing the sounds is also known as “caterpillar blending” because it mimics the movement of a caterpillar crawling along a leaf.
4. Spell the Sounds
Once your students have mastered tapping and pushing, it’s time to spell the sounds. This means writing down each individual sound in the word. By doing so, your students will begin to understand the relationship between letters and sounds.
5. Spell the Word
Finally, it’s time to spell the whole word. Using the individual spellings of each sound, your students can now confidently spell the word in its entirety. Celebrate this accomplishment with a high-five.
Using our Word Map (laminated) or Student Book, your students will easily follow along with the slideshow and stay on track. Plus, they will need “markers” to push the sounds, which makes learning and engaging with the material all the more fun!
Our CVC Orthographic Mapping Slideshow comes with short a, short e, short i, short o, and short u slideshows. So, you can teach all the important CVC words easily and efficiently.
Continuously assess students’ progress and adjust your instruction accordingly. Provide feedback and support as they work to develop their orthographic mapping skills. By following these steps, you can help your students build a strong foundation in phoneme-grapheme correspondence and develop the ability to read and spell with greater accuracy and fluency.
