120 Elkonin Sound Box Task Cards-5 LONG VOWEL SETS
Students get targeted short vowel practice with these phonics task cards. Each set of 24 pictures targets a short vowel for a total of 120 words. Each picture has the corresponding letter boxes under it. Each box is in the shape of the correct letter. Laminate the cards so that students can write inside the boxes. Students are forced to feel for all the sounds in their mouth in order to find all the sounds and letters. Included in each set is a page with 24 sets of dotted lines so that you can have the students who finish early transfer their answers.
The key to emergent reading or letter-name level in word study, is to provide a lot of practice for students to feel for sounds in their mouth. The more success they have in differentiating all of the sounds and determining how sounds feel different and are made in different parts of the mouth, the faster they move to the next level of reading/spelling. This center and the other short vowel centers will help your students move to that next level. As with all picture sorts or picture word work, introduce the pictures to the students before placing the work in a center so as to avoid being interrupted and ensure success.
I love using these task cards to compliment my developmental spelling lessons. I use a combination of Words Their Way and Word Journeys.
