1M2 C7 L37 Baking & Making Words: all letter & digraphs (Full Alphabetic)

 Baking & Making Words

Teacher Preparation:

  • Teacher assigns or prepares to display the activity.


  1. Teacher models the activity by choosing a few CCVC/CVCC words (e.g., “shot”, “path”, "much" etc.) and building it by dragging and dropping letters. Teacher can choose words with any vowel and a digraph.
  2. Teacher encourages students to say some CCVC and/or CVCC words they would like to make using a short vowel and a digraph at the beginning or end of the word.
  3. Students drag and drop the letters to make words in their "oven."
  4. Students create a series of words and then read them aloud before they “Bake” them, “eat” them and then make a new set of words.


  • Students can copy the words given to them on cards by the teacher.
  • Teacher can provide students with a rime such as “am”, “ot”, "ug," "ed" or “in.” Student can add different onsets (beginning consonants) to the beginning of the rime to create several new words, both real and nonsense.
  • Teacher can start with a word and ask students to change the vowel to create new words.


  • Students can write the words after they “bake” them on included tab.
  • Students can make new words by just changing the first letter.
