Product Description
If your students need practice distinguishing between long and short vowel sounds spelled cvc and cvce, this clip card activity will make a great literacy center, word work center, or early finisher activity.

It includes 32 clip cards. Students will look at the picture on each card and use a clothespin to clip the correct spelling written on the side of the card. This set is unique in that it includes both short vowel words spelled CVC and long vowel words spelled CVCe. Students will have to carefully apply their knowledge of the spelling patterns to clip the correct spellings. Clip cards are also a great way to build fine motor skills!

To prolong their use, I recommend laminating these cards or printing them on sturdy cardstock.

You can make this resource self-checking by placing a dot or sticker on the back of the card, or ask students to record their answers on the attached recording sheets. Two recording sheet options are included. One contains handwriting lines, the other does not. Choose the option that best meets the needs of your students. An answer key is also included for your convenience.


Looking for more clip card sets? This set is also included in my Clip Card Bundle. Purchase multiple clip card sets together at a discounted price. You can see the individual listings for all my clip card centers here.
