The bundle includes worksheets for teaching CVC words, digraphs, blends, CVCe words, vowel teams, r controlled vowels, and diphthongs. You will get over 250 worksheets for your literacy program!
I love these decodable sentence building worksheets because they provide students with writing, reading, cutting, coloring, and a gluing task. Each worksheet is formatted the same, so teach your students the directions once, and they can complete the task in the future!
Students will work on decoding, sentence structure, handwriting, writing, fine motor, AND high-frequency words. That’s pretty good, am I right?!
These worksheets would be great for small groups, extended practice, whole group review, or literacy centers. Students could get extra training in areas they need more exposure to so they master that skill area.
CVC Sentence Building Worksheets
In the CVC resource, you will get 40 worksheets covering over 25 different word families. These are Science of Reading aligned and would be very beneficial in a structured literacy program.
These worksheets feature some high frequency words, including the, we, will, he, she, I, is, in it, am, be, and, on, and a. Besides these words, the worksheets use entirely decodable CVC words. CVC words are words made up of a consonant, vowel, consonant. They all feature a short vowel sound.
CVC words are some of the first words that students learn to read because they tend to follow the phonetic rules, can be sounded out in three steps, and always have a short vowel sound. Students will also get fine motor practice with cutting, coloring, and gluing to complete the worksheet.
Digraphs Sentence Building Worksheets
Want to up your digraph resources? Grab these 40 worksheets that focus on digraphs to help your first grade or kindergarten students master this phonetic rule. This resource features eight digraphs while using simple sight words and decodable CVC words to make sentences.
Digraphs are two letters that come together to form a new sound. This resource features the digraphs sh-, ch-, th-, wh-, -sh, -ck, -th, -ch. Digraphs can be found at the beginning or the end of words, so I have worksheets for both!
Students will cut out the words, then decode them, and put them in order to make a sentence that matches the picture. These worksheets are great for independent practice while you work one-on-one with students or in small groups.
Blends Sentence Building Worksheets

R controlled Vowels Sentence Building Worksheets
R controlled vowels are vowels that are followed by an r. The r causes the vowel to make a different sound. This can be confusing for children just learning to read, so I have created a set of 40 worksheets that focus solely on r controlled vowels!
Each worksheet uses r controlled vowels, sight words, CVC words, blends, digraphs, and CVCe words. All the words are decodable and create an excellent resource for kindergarten and first-grade students to practice their reading skills in a fun and engaging task.

A diphthong is a sound formed by the combination of two vowels in a single syllable. Think of words like coin, loud, and house. This is one of the more complex phonetic rules for young readers to master, so they may need extra practice.
That is why I created this set of 40 worksheets that feature diphthongs and other decodable words. Students will get hands-on practice reading and utilizing sentences containing diphthongs, CVC words, blends, digraphs, CVCe words, and high frequency words.
