Reading is one of my biggest goals for Mom School. It’s a life skill that opens doors to next-level learning and the foundation for all academics. But where on earth do you begin? Or, once you know all the letters, where do you go next on the path towards reading? The answer is to progress into simple Word Structure and CVC Words. Vowel Awareness and Blends are next. I cover both in this Lesson Plan set for Reading Part 2.

What are CVC Words?

CVC Words are 3-Letter Words with a Consonant, Vowel, Consonant structure. They have three distinct sounds that can be heard individually. Reading begins when a student can take those three sounds and blend them together, forming and reading a word. Sounds build words.

CVC Words are the next level after learning sounds. Letter recognition, phoneme awareness, and basic sight words are all Reading Part 1. You’ll use all three of those skills gained in Part 1 as a structure for Word Building in Part 2. Students will begin to “Sound Out” CVC Words, blend them together and gradually begin reading on their own.

What are Vowel Blends?

When two vowels are next to each other in a word they form a single, sometimes unique sound. Consider these blends to start as the 27th letter of the alphabet. Students should learn to see them and speak their phoneme exactly as they would for a single letter. It’s not as easy as it sounds, obviously, as we have several that make the same sounds.

Vowel Blends Lesson 2 | Video

In this video we see Cash rocket through his Vowel Blends. Cash is halfway through Kindergarten and has had a lot of practice with blends already. I mainly make him go through the Lesson to reinforce Sight “blends” as if they’re phonemes like I mention above. Cash still struggles to identify these blends in written text, so the more practice he has at building them, the better odds he’ll have for recognizing them.

CVC Word & Vowel Blends Lesson Plans

Here are my Lesson Plans for Part 2. There are FOUR lessons total to be spread across 4 weeks in the unit. If you’re using the Block Schedule these would happen inside the Reading Block at 15-20 minutes per day, which is really all it needs to be. Admittedly, despite the cute font, this type of drill lesson is exhausting on little minds. You do not want to overdo it on any day, so I strongly suggest sticking to one lesson per week.
