Complete the CVC Word

Reception Resource

Here is the free game

There are ten word lists with over 100 CVC words.

Ten words are randomly selected from a list of fifteen words. The teacher can then work through each word in turn, with pupils picking a tail that succesfully completes the CVC word. The tail is then dragged onto the donkey to make a complete word.

The list can be hidden or shown to help students find the right tail.
