My students always get more excited about learning when I can combine current holidays and seasons with their learning. These Groundhog Day CVC Puzzles do just the trick. Your students will have to much fun during literacy centers that they will not even know that they are learning!
Groundhog Day CVC Puzzles contains four different CVC puzzles for all five vowels.
Getting Groundhog Day CVC Puzzles Ready
It is recommended that you print this resource on cardstock and laminate so that it can be used for years to come. When cutting out something so many pages, I always use my paper cutter. This makes the job quick and easy!
For storage, I recommend using these plastic pencil holders or ziploc baggies. This will keep all of the cards in one place, while also keeping them from getting mixed up.
Doing Groundhog Day CVC Puzzles
After laying out all of the pieces, students can choose a groundhog puzzle piece that has a picture on it. This students chose the puzzle piece with a picture of a cat.
They will then search for the letter that the picture starts with. Cat starts with the letter “Cc” so they placed this puzzle piece after the picture puzzle piece.
They continued this until the puzzle had all four puzzle pieces.
If you think that your students will be overwhelmed by having all twenty puzzle at once, start small. You can give students one puzzle per vowel. As they master those, you can add another and then another until all twenty puzzles are out.
You can also make the puzzle into a two piece puzzle – having the groundhog with the picture be one piece and the other piece would be the word spelled out.
