Choo-Choo Words are a series of train themed worksheets that provide students with the opportunity to practice building/spelling short vowel (CVC) words. Students simply need to cut the letter strip off from the bottom of their paper and use the letters to glue onto the train cars to spell the word that tells the name of the picture in the train’s steam cloud.

One page per short vowel (a, e, I, o and u) is included.

These practice pages can be used with the book Old Tracks, New Tricks by Jessica Petersen.

PRINTING: When printing, make sure to select “Fit to Page” or “Scale to Fit” to ensure that all borders, text, and graphics print correctly and on one page.

About the Book Old Tracks New Tricks: When three creative train tracks join an old wooden train set, the bossy engines blare orders, and the bored tracks snore on the floor. Can the three little tracks show the whole train set how to work together and invent new fun? Part fun, rhyming story, part activity idea book, Old Tracks, New Tricks shows kids how to create new ways to play with their favorite toys.
