What Skills Can Your Little Ones Learn And Develop?


These Valentine’s Day CVC words cards 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

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.
