CVC Word Stories
We came up with a fun CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) word game one day, and turned it into CVC Word Stories. First, I drew 3 lines on the white board- one black line, one green line, and another black line, like this: ____ ____ ____ .
I asked students to supply a consonant for each black line, and a vowel (which I wrote in green) for the green line. We made a bank of various CVC words we created, then brainstormed and put them together to form a story with a beginning, middle, and end. We identified characters, setting, and important events. We highlighted all our CVC words, illustrated our story, and enjoyed it for shared reading. We created our 2nd story with another group of words on another day. You can save the stories and put them together into a big book of CVC Word Stories, if you like. So much fun!
