CVC Logic Tile Cards are a fun, hands-on way for students to learn about consonant-vowel-consonant words! These tile cards will challenge students by having them use their logic and spelling skills to complete a variety of CVC words, using only five vowel letter tiles. Students have to manipulate the vowel tiles on each card, until they get five correct CVC words. Some cards can have words where multiple vowels fit in one word (i.e. b __ g could be “big”, “bug,” “bag,” or “beg”), so students will be challenged to use their problem solving skills to figure out which letter belongs in a particular box.
Students place the vowel letter tiles on the “vowel place mat” at the bottom of each tile card before beginning. This is a great time to reinforce and practice the sound each vowel makes (both short and long). This center can also be done with a partner, where students take turns trying to complete the five words on the tile card together.
Students are able to see their success in working through these tile cards, as they keep track using their own Tile Card Tracker (also included in this file). Once a tile card is completed and checked by the teacher, students get a “star” on their Tile Card Tracker and they are allowed to choose another card to complete.
Logic Tile Cards make a great center activity, either for small group, or independent student practice. Directions are included with each set, so parent volunteers can easily run a tile card center too. Once students get the hang of how to complete a tile card, this becomes a fun and easy go-to center for students!

Thanks so much and happy “Tile Time!”
