We all know that students are more engaged when playing games. The CVC Word Family Digital Spinner Games and accompanying activities are a fun and interactive way for students to practice identifying and reading CVC word families. The digital nature of the CVC word family spinners provides a new and innovative way for students to work with the content. This will excite and motivate them as they complete the games and activities. Best of all, there is no need to print spinners and provide paper clips and pencils or plastic spinners. The digital spinners can be used on interactive whiteboards, computers, and tablets such as an iPad. This means that the activities can be used in the classroom or for distance learning.
Segmenting and blending CVC words is one of the most important steps in helping a child to become a fluent reader. Word families are patterns (chunks) found in words that can make learning to read easier. With repetition and exposure to these patterns, students will learn to recognize the patterns by sight and sound. This will lead to children reading more fluently and help with the recognition of spelling patterns and, in turn, the acquisition of spelling skills.
The CVC Word Family Digital Spinner Games make practicing to read CVC words a fun game that students will love to play.

The word building mat can be used with magnetic letters or dry-erase markers for students to spell the CVC words. Students spin a picture on the CVC word family digital spinner and build the matching word.
Spin and Spell worksheets are also included for each CVC Word Family Digital Spinner. Students can build the CVC words with magnetic letters directly on the worksheet or write the words.
These worksheets are great for use alongside the CVC Word building mats or as accountability worksheets for students to record their work.
Race to the Top Game and Worksheets
In Race to the Top, using the digital spinner, students spin a picture, read the CVC word, and place a counter in the matching column. The game ends when one of the CVC words gets to the top.
The Race to the Top mats can be laminated and students can write the CVC word using a dry-erase marker. With this approach, not only are your students reading CVC words, but they are also practicing spelling the CVC words.
A worksheet version of the Race to the Top game is also included. These can be used in the classroom in place of the color Race to the Top mats or used by students at home. Students can color the squares or write the CVC word.
Spin, Read and Cover Game
The Spin, Read and Cover game encourages students to read CVC words by finding and matching them to the CVC picture spun on the digital spinner.
Each of the Spin, Read and Cover mats has a cute design to make the activity fun and novel each time a student plays the game.
A worksheet version is also included. Students can spin, read and color the matching CVC word.
Students will love practicing to read and spell CVC words with the digital interactive spinners. No need to print spinners and provide pencils and paper clips!
