Lego Construction CVC Word Sort

I’m about to finish my second semester in the Elementary Education program, and this is something I created for my Literacy Methods class. After¬†giving a student a phonics survey, I was required to write a personalized lesson with games and activities to help teach the concept the student needed more work on, and in this case it was CVC words (consonant, vowel, consonant words with a short vowel sound). Since the student loved Legos, I decided to turn the typically boring word sort into a more fun game by attaching the words to be sorted onto Legos and having them sorted into containers labeled by construction cones. It turned out to be a success because the student went from scoring a 7 out of 15 on CVC words to a 14 out of 15. The Lego vehicle was from my husband’s collection, the white containers were from the dollar section at Target, and the construction cones were from the Silhouette store (found here). ¬†It was time consuming taping all the words onto the Legos, but well worth it.
