Full Circle: reading CVC words

Full Circle: reading CVC words (Phase 3 phonics)

This is a learning-to-read game sometimes used in schools. Cut out all the CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) words and hold them in a pile. Sit in front of your child and show them one of the words (for example, man). Then show them some of the other words; when you show them a word they’ve already seen (like man) again they shout ‘Full Circle’! The Full Circle exercise will help encourage your child to read the CVC words at a glance. They are looking at the letters in the words and the shape of the words – this is what learning to read is largely about!
