What are CVC Words?

CVC words follow the pattern Consonant-Vowel-Consonant. These simple words are a great start for kindergarten children to practice reading and spelling. Examples: cat, dad, dog, zip.

CVC words are great to build the fundamental phonics skills. For kindergarten students, it is much easier to learn to read CVC words that have the same pattern (word family). Examples: cat, hat, rat, or dash, bash, hash. Reading those words are predictable and students easily follow the pattern.

What are CVCC and CCVC Words?

CVCC (consonant-vowel-consonant-consonant) and CCVC (consonant-consonant-vowel-consonant) are words that begin or ends with a blends or digraphs. Examples: black, clam, hack, lack.
