CVC Words Bingo Cards





CVC words are words that begin with a consonant, have a short vowel in the middle, and end in consonant. they are words like cat, bus, and mop. They are words that do not have blends or vowel digraphs. They are the first words taught in a course on phonics. They are usually taught after initial sounds have been taught and while teaching short vowels.


Teachers can print as many unique cards as is necessary for their class. After you go to the card generator (which opens in a new browser) print the card and then just simply refresh the browser to get a new card. You should also print a set of 'bingo balls' to put in a paper bag for drawing.
