CVC word sort Pack 1

Phonics word family is an important step towards blending. These word families provide our emergent readers with a predictable pattern in an otherwise confusing language. These patterns can be recognized by the child thus making the process of blending easier for our readers. These patterns also make the child a quick, smart and fluent reader.

Today, I will be sharing Pack 1 of ‘three-letter words’ worksheets with you.
