CVC Word Puzzle

This CVC word puzzle is great for beginning readers to practice reading 16 short vowel CVC words, while putting together a picture of a child's bedroom!

FREE CVC word puzzle that includes 16 short vowel CVC words. Great for beginning readers!

I recommend laminating the puzzle and pieces and using velcro dots to stick the puzzle pieces.

The page with the CVC words stays together, while the page with pictures gets cut up to make the puzzle pieces. Children read each word one at a time, then find the matching piece until the puzzle is complete!
