This unit concentrates on the bossy r/r-controlled vowel sound “er”. I have included a huge variety of words to practice this concept, as well as a huge variety of activities!

-Roll, Say, Keep game mats with 2 different word cards (one with just words and one with words and pic clue for differentiation/scaffolding) and a response sheet
- word work/word building cards and coordinating mats- children look at the picture, spell the word then check the card to see if they got the spelling correct(self checking). Then, they write a sentence using the word, using a dry erase marker

I have also included directions for using it as a 3rd “Write the Room” activity or center. I have also included a student response sheet.
-Round Robin (Kagan Structure) “Flower Power” to use/do this structure with your class with this game incase you are unfamiliar with it!
