Olly Octopus CVC Initial Sound Task Cards

Olly Octopus CVC Initial Sound Task Cards

This game includes 24 full colour game cards. Consonant-Vowel-Consonant Words are the next stage in learning to read after learning the alphabet letter sounds and names. These cards are great for developing beginning reading skills as children learn a set of rhyming words as they use each card. Children must match the appropriate initial sounds with the final blend on each simple CVC word card and identify those that make real words and those that make nonsense words.

Eg. b..ig, p..ig, w..ig, d..ig, make real words while h..ig, and l..ig, can be sounded but make nonsense words.

'Playing' with the initial sounds in this way teaches children the importance of each letter in a word and how by changing just one letter a new word can be made.

The smiling octopus graphic is most engaging for young children. The cards could be used by individuals or in pairs. Great to use for literacy activities during the morning literacy block. Each card measures aprox 10 x 10 cms. Useable for little hands.

Most suitable for pre-school, kindergarten/reception and lower primary grades.
