Look out the Writing Window and write the CVC (Consonant-Vowel-Consonant) words! This C-V-C reading and writing special education resource activity is perfect for children beginning to read and decode words by sounding out letter sounds.
A writing “WORD WINDOW” is a high-interest visual used to help keep students focused on practicing fine motor writing skills, building vocabulary knowledge, or life skill. Our students with special learning needs may have challenges with fine motor skills, need extra support for reading, remaining focused on an academic task, or completing tasks independently. Our “WORD WINDOWS” come in a variety of themes for all skills and ages! This is a highly engaging task to motivate students to write words!
