Introduce and explore words containing the consonant-consonant-vowel-consonant pattern with this printable list of CCVC words.

50 CCVC Words Ready to Print

This list of 50 CCVC words has been compiled to assist you in implementing your phonics program in your classroom. Once they have mastered CVC words, the next logical step is introducing words containing an additional consonant before the vowel. Students will become more confident in their reading and writing as they add more CCVC words to their repertoire.

Multiple Applications for This CCVC Word List

This list of CCVC words can be used in numerous ways to support the diverse needs of your learners during your literacy sessions. Here are some of our suggestions:

Whole-class instruction

Project the word list on your interactive whiteboard. As a class, practice segmenting and blending the phonemes in each CCVC word on the list. You might also like to manipulate the phonemes in each word to create word chains, e.g. “What word do we make if we swap the “n” in “chin” with a “p”? How can we swap out the “i” to make a new word?”

Individual Practice with C-V-C-C Words

Send the lists home so your students can revise decoding (reading) and encoding (spelling) the CCVC words on the list. Be sure to include only words containing letter-sound correspondences you have already addressed in class. 

Formative assessment

Use the word list as a progress monitoring tool to keep track of your student’s phonemic awareness and identify the letter-sound correspondences that require further review.
