CCVC Words: consonant - consonant - vowel - consonant
Lots of kids struggle to hear (and therefore spell) the second sound in many words, particularly when the second sound changes:
sk, sl, sm, sn, sp and st is much harder to hear (as it changes) than the second sound in br, cr, dr, fr, gr, pr and tr where it remains the same.
This pack focusses on hearing and spelling this tricky second sound.
Use it over & over again to keep the kids engaged and learning through play!💖
✅ Letter Sounds
✅ Hearing the tricky second sound
✅ CCVC Words
You'll feel confident teaching your child/client/students to:
1. Sound out words by pulling apart the sounds (segmenting):
2. Hear/sound out and spell, focussing on the tricky second sound:
3. Read and match each sound to the correct letter/digraph:
read skip hear s-k-i-p spell skip read brush hear b-r-u-sh spell brush
4. Put the sounds back together (blending) to read the word:
s-k-i-p makes the word skip b-r-u-sh makes the word brush
🛑 Note: Blends – originally the term for CC (two consonants together) combinations were called and taught as blends.
For example: frog was made up of the blend ‘fr’, the short sound vowel ‘o’ and consonant ‘g’ but now we teach it as f-r-o-g, recognising and sounding out each of the sounds individually.
For this reason we have not referred to CC combinations as blends, however, we have still covered all of the CC combinations.
✅ Double Consonant Combinations:
Sound out the first two consonant sounds in each of the words.
✅ The Second Sound I Hear is:

I absolutely love these resources and so do the kids! They even request to use them over and over again!
These were so helpful with my little one’s. It helped me to be able to get them interested in retelling the story by using the pictures which l put on pop sticks stick.
Love these poppies.
Constructed the poppies by sticking on a small piece of cardboard and then attaching to a stick to push into the dirt.
Very efficient and poignant silhouette for ANZAC Day

Thank you for this awesome idea! My printer wasn’t actually working so I couldn’t print out your beautiful printable but I used the idea & cardboard to make a wreath…loved the taping of straw & threading with a pipe cleaner to keep it together, so clever.

Great craft ideas for all ages. And so easy.
