What Is A CVC Word?

A CVC word is a three-letter word made up of a consonant, vowel, and consonant such as hat, leg, and cup.

When a vowel is followed by a consonant, it is a closed syllable and makes the vowel say its sound.

CVC words are the simplest words for kids to read because each letter makes its sound.

Beginning readers can decode and sound the words out. Hands-on activities like this resource make practicing these skills fun for kids!
