Here is a “Hide and Seek” lesson to practice reading CVC words. You could also include sight words in the jar.


Down on the Farm – Lesson 8

I can read cvc words.

Objective: To fluently read cvc words. (RF.K.2)

Materials: an empty clear plastic jar, popcorn kernels, small blank cards, marker

Procedures: Wash out a large, clear peanut butter jar and fill it three fourths full of popcorn kernels. Write cvc and/or sight words  on the blank cards. Place the word cards in the jar. Your child will slowly turn the jar and read any word that is uncovered.

Conclusion: Have your child write five different words that he found in the jar.
