K4 Curriculum ~ Funny Words (CVC Words)

Hi everyone! I’m excited to share my new CVC Funny Words maker with everyone. As part of my K4 Expansion, we’re working more on beginning reading skills. These flip cards are great for getting new readers used to putting letter sounds together.


–> Click here to download Funny Words <–

To play:

  1. Cut out the letter tiles and hole punch where indicated.
  2. Using 3 key rings, bind the letters together to make a flip chart.
  3. Have your student flip the letters to make funny words.

There are actual word ideas on the back cover of the booklet, but I also encourage you to let them try to blend together whatever letters they flip to. It’s more fun, and gives students great practice blending letter sounds together.

These activities are part of my K4 level expansion to my Letter of the Week Curriculum, click on the images below to see more activities!

  1. Super cute Erica!!Annie

  2. this is so wonderful! :) it will be fun :) many thanks

  3. Is it just me, or is there no letter "B" card?

  4. I would like an entire page of "blanks" so I can add in other cards…such as consonant blends, and vowel combos, as we progress….

  5. Sarah: Letter b is the first letter on pg 3 of the document. vowels are at the end.

  6. oops sorry you were right for some reason the b didn't show up. It should be fixed now, please re-download, sorry!

  7. What a great idea! Thank you for sharing. It reminds me a little of my "Flip It Word Game" (check it out here: Stop by my blog or better yet, 'Like' its Facebook page. I'd be thrilled to have another parent with great educational activities as a follower!

    Good catch Sarah! It would have taken me a while to notice no letter B!Thanks for fixing that Erica!And thanks for yet another great resource!

  9. Love your idea! What a fun way to practice some CVC words!How do you copyright your creations? I couldn't find that info on your PDF file. I need to copyright some texts I've written before I distribute them via my blog.Thanks for helping,Becky

  10. Becky: Thank you! To copyright e-versions you can go to:

  11. My son loves this activity! See a pic of him enjoying the cards here:, Erica, for all of your hard work.

  12. This is a great idea. I am a Reading Specialist and will recommend this activity for teachers to do in their reading centers at the appropriate time. Thanks so much!

  13. So, I’m right in that it’s consonant, vowel, consonant, so all the vowels in the middle and one of each consonant on the beginning and end?

  14. Very, very cute. Good idea for blending words.

  15. Thank you so much for this printable. My daughter has been struggling with beginning to read and this wonderful hands on tool has helped her so much!!

    I know this is an old post…but I am just downloading. The letter “B” is still not there. Also what do we do with the letter “Q”? Is that just for sounding out? Thanks so much for offering so many great downloads….

    • Same here. I am knew to this and I just tried to download it and the B was missing. Could someone please re-post for us? thanks!

    • For the letter q, yes, the point isn’t to make real words, though you certainly can. It’s more to get used to blending the letters together. But if it’s confusing them then it might be a good idea to just put the “u” next to the “q” and then go through with the ending consonants flipping around.

      For the letter B, i can’t figure it out! It’s there on the printable, i don’t know why it’s not printing. Some weird fluke, so sorry!

  17. Hi Ladies,

    To make a b, I reprinted the page with the q on it and cut it with the circle below. Then I flipped it over to make a b. I have thought of ways to use the extra letters from this page. For example, the extra s from this page could be used to make some of the words plural.


  18. p.s. Since most q words are followed by a u, I plan on using the q and u cards followed by a blank card to practice the “qu” sound. It would be fun to hear other ideas.
