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!

In this unit you will find:

-2 different “Write the Room” activities with student response sheet
-clip cards (er picture, children have to choose the correct word/spelling) and response sheet for a center activity
-7 different roll and cover games with coordinating dice
-2 different “Scoot” games and response sheet
-Mixed up sentences containing er words and response sheet
-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
-60+ break apart/puzzle word to picture cards with response sheet
-2 different “I Have Who Has” games
-8 different Reading er words tic, tac, toe boards

-“The Flower Game”- Flowers with “er” that you put on a “wand” (straw or popsicle stick) and the children use to supply the “er” to the words as they read. This is a great warm up for guided reading. 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! Game is great for small groups to use at the same time and you can do a quick check for mastery! Or use in a center or small guided reading group. I have included 2 types of cards (with and without pic prompts) for differentiation/scaffolding.
-Word Family Word Sort Pocket chart activity with response sheet for use in small group/centers.

I have also included 30+ different worksheets/printables that include: word building, word to pic matching, writing words with “er”, read and draw, spin to win, flip books, mixed up sentences and writing prompts with “er” words.
