It’s February! Time for teaching our students all about brushing, flossing and all things teeth. While we typically teach how to brush teeth, dental health is also a fabulous theme for literacy and math activities. If you have a week dedicated to teeth, this CVC Word Work activity is a great addition!
How To Use Dental Health CVC Activity
You’ll only need a few supplies to prep this cvc activity and when it is prepped you can use over and over.
How To Prep
Cut the picture cards out and laminate. These can be reused.
How To Use This Dental Health CVC Activity
This CVC activity can be used with small groups, partners or as an independent activity. One idea is to put the cards in a sensory bin. Students can search through the sensory bin to find the cards, then write the word that they find on the recording sheet.
Another idea is to place the cards around the room. If you give the recording sheets to students on a clipboard, they can walk around the room, find the cards and write the words that they see.
Alternatively, you can place the cards on a table and students can write the words from there.
Included In This Printable Pack
18 CVC picture cards
3 separate recording sheets
