Use these CVC Cards with your students at your word work center. Use dry erase markers to make words by adding the beginning and ending sounds.  Students can then copy the words they have made into their notebooks.  Alternatively, they can use the recording sheet to sort the words by their vowel sounds.  This center comes with 45 cards (9 cards for each short vowel sound).
