Hearing a child learn to read for the first times is one of the greatest joys for parents, teachers and kids! There is nothing like it! After children learn their letter sounds, the next step is CVC word. I wanted to share some teaching methods that have worked for me in my teaching career and with my own children.
2. Spin, Read and Write– Learning becomes a game when get to use a spinner. A simple paperclip and pencil will make this activity fun for all students! The bonus is that they are also writing the word int the box next to the spinner.
3. Word Bank– Students will use the words in the word bank to match the correct cvc to the correct shape of the boxes.

It looks like a good resource. If I have to go on the previous items I bought from you, I am sure it is awesome.

Fully agree with your comments! Fun, fun, fun, repetition, repetition, repetition, hands one, engaging – the works. Kids learn without the tediousness, they're having fun and they love it! This is definitely achieved through your packets! The results speak for themselves!
I have students from last year who keep telling their fellow classmates what fun they had with the R2R packet last year! Unfortunately, my boss this year said he wanted me to do things differently (>groan<)- he still hasn't discovered the benefits of interactive work with children.
In the meantime, I will keep collecting your resources as I totally love them!
Where can I find these dice? I’ve been looking everywhere!
You can find them at Lakeshore Learning.

What would you do after CVC word families are mastered?
The next phonics skill that should be practiced are CVCe words (Consonant, Vowel, Consonant and silent e), and CVCC words (Consonant, Vowel, Consonant, Consonant). For CVCe activities, click here. For CVCC activities, click here. I hope these help!
