Kids are fascinated by anything related to the farm. It was hands-down one of my favorite field trips to take my students on because they were beyond excited to be there. During the week, in the classroom, we are busy learning all about farms. I love incorporating this into literacy and math centers. This Farm CVC Words is a great addition to your literacy centers to get your students exposed to building three letter words in a fun, farm themed activity. Are you looking for more farm ideas, activities, and printables to do at home or in the classroom? If so click here.
Implementing Farm CVC Words
Farm CVC Words literacy center comes with thirty pages of centers, each page containing a picture of a three letter word on the chicken coup. There are two different word mats available to choose from to better fit the needs of all of your students. It is recommended that you print on cardstock and laminate for extra durability.
The goal of this center is easy – we want students to use their sounds and make words. Students will do this by using the eggs to make the given word on the build a word mat.
For younger (or struggling) students, there is a build a word mat that has the word spelled out already so all students will have to do is match the letters on the egg to the word mat. My daughter was able to do this and loved it, in fact!
When first starting out, I would not give students access to all mats at once. This would most likely be very difficult for them and set them up for possible frustrations and failure. Once students have mastered a small number of mats, keep adding more and eventually they will be able to complete them all without any problem. At the end of the day, you know your students best so set them up for success!
