Great addition to your farm themed unit with red barns, haystacks, and farm animals! Students practice reading and making these easy to decode words. There are many great ways to use this one activity file. In this activity students choose a barn with a CVC word that is missing the vowel. Students then vowel the correct vowel on the haystack to place in the middle of the word. There is also a corresponding animal picture card that matches the word on the barn. So students have to make the word, read the word, and find the matching animal picture card. This activity can be self checking by writing the word on the back of the barn and animal card. Print this activity on card stock, laminate for durability and have students start practicing. This is a great activity for a learning station working with letters and words. Great for Kindergarten or lower level first graders. This activity comes with a worksheet which can be used for additional practice or assessment where students have to choose 4 of the words they made and write the word, draw a picture of the word, and write a sentence using the word.
