There is no better way to make learning fun during the festive season than with some festive activities! Yesterday, my daughter (Prep/Kindergarten) and I had heaps of fun with my Christmas Stocking CVC Word Scramble. I printed the CVC Stockings from my Christmas Literacy Centers unit, laminated them and then cut them apart.

We got busy turning over all our Scrabble letter tiles, letter-side up…
… and then Cami read the instructions so she would know what to do.
Then she got started!
The aim of this activity is to collect the scrambled letters shown on each stocking and build a CVC word to match the picture. Very straight-forward, and lots of fun!
After the activity, Cami completed a worksheet from my Christmas Math & Literacy worksheets and activities unit. Here’s a photo of her sounding out each letter as she writes it.
Completed work! Yep, we had some letter reversal oopsies and we almost thought “tin” was “can”, but we worked it out in the end!
To finish our learning session, we made a short vowel “i” stocking and I wrote down all the short “i” CVC words she could remember from the activity or knew.

I thought I’d take some photos to show you how I store all the printable activities in our home. I put all the pieces from the activity, including instruction card, in a plastic envelope (if someone knows that correct term for the envelopes, please let me know what it is!!).
I tape the label to the back and then store them in a box with similar word work activities. Easy-peasy!
We will be back soon with some more Christmas activities!
