CVC words are words that consist of three sounds that follow a consonant/vowel/consonant pattern which can be sounded out. CVC words (together with VC words such as up and at) are considered the simplest words for emerging readers to decode by blending and segmenting the sounds together.

Note that graphemes with more than one letter can still make up CVC words, for example, b-a-ck is a CVC word in which the second consonant sound corresponds to a digraph and k-ee-p is also a CVC word in which the vowel sound corresponds to a digraph.

Phonics is the method that helps children build systematic connections between letters and sounds. Phonics has a better impact on children’s reading ability than any other type of reading program. It has also been shown to improve spelling, particularly among Kindergarteners and First Graders.

This report provides an easy-to-understand overview of phonics and phonemic awareness - why they are important and how they are taught in the classroom - and explains all the relevant terminology. It's perfect for sharing with colleagues, friends, and to Google Classroom!
