CVC Word Puzzles

I printed these CVC word puzzles from Sparklebox for Faith to begin using her movable alphabet with. I chose the words containing letters that she knows already for her to begin writing the words. I printed the CCVC/CVCC set as she seems to intuitively blend the consonants together already and I don't want to hold her back. The cards in this set often contain three boxes for three phonemes but two of my moveable letters won't fit into one box to create a phoneme (e.g. 'sh'). Very kindly the Sparklebox team tweaked it for me so all the cards contain four boxes! If you are using the cards with phoneme tiles, this won't be necessary!

I have also got out the egg word-picture match puzzle that I made from Kelly's Kindergarten a few years ago for Eve to use. It involves her reading the words then matching to the pictures. Some of the words are American and may not be appropriate for your child but I like the game - the link to it can be found through Laura's My Montessori Journey blog here.

I also have out my good old Montessori objects and picture cards in pink boxes to add to and change as Faith progresses. I'm going to merge pink and blue a little and add in some CVCC and CCVC objects and cards for Faith as well.


  1. Thank you for these links! It's so nice to meet another Montessori momma. Have a great weekend!

  2. Sparklebox is so large, thanks for directing me! Also, the egg matching is great, and so is Kelly!
