What Skills Can Your Little Ones Learn And Develop?
These CVC words with pictures are designed to help your children practice and develop their early reading and writing skills, such as:
- Segmenting – this is the ability to breakdown and hear each sound in a word.
- Sounding out – this is saying the different sounds that the written letters make, one sound at a time.
- Blending – the ability to put the different sounds of a word together to be able to correctly say the word.
- Letter recognition
- Letter formation – if they practice writing them out after they have completed the puzzle
These are important skills taught during phonics lessons and help your children take some of their first steps on the path to becoming fluent readers.

One way, is you can use the cards as they are, as flash cards for your children to practice sounding out and blending the simple CVC words.
When they are confident, you can cut out the puzzle piece letters and see if they can find the correct sounds to correctly spell the word in the picture. This will test their segmenting and letter recognition skills. You may want to just start with the letters of that word and see if they can order them correctly, before mixing letters from other words as well.
