Are you working on distinguishing long and short vowel sounds in words- both by initial and medial sound?
Looking for a fun way to incorporate vowel sounds into Easter/Spring fun?
This pack can be modified in many ways to meet all the needs of all the students in your class- how 'EGG'-citing for both you...and them!
This Pack Includes:
*10 Full Color Easter/Spring Baskets
*10 B&W Baskets (use if you want to reserve ink/photocopy onto colored paper)
(1 for each long & short vowel-labeled with words & picture clue)
*100 Egg Picture Cards
(5 initial long vowel sound, 5 initial sound short vowel sound,
5 medial long vowel sound, 5 medial short vowel sound cards
for each of the 5 vowels [20 for each vowel])
*5 blank eggs to use for additional pictures you want added to your sort
*optional recording sheet- students write in words/draw pictures for the pictures they sorted for each vowel type
*b&w printable to use for assessment of mastery, additional practice/review, morning work, homework, RTI activity, progress monitoring, etc!
(baskets on one page; pictures to sort on another page)
*Supports & Aligns with Common Core Standards RF.K.2 & RF.K.3
How To Use:
*Print, cut & laminate all pieces- eggs can be cut on dotted lines, or follow shape of the egg for a more ‘authentic look!’
*You can make it ‘self-correcting’ by writing the vowel letter on the back of the egg picture cards
*Have students sort all vowel sounds, just those working on, only 2 to distinguish between 2 sounds they are having trouble with, only long sounds, only short sounds, only initial, only medial, etc!
The possibilities are endless!
*Students select an egg (can put all the ‘eggs’ in a bag, a real Easter basket or spread on table)
*Students say picture name and sort by long/short vowel sound
*Have students record & self-correct (if applicable) and/or complete b&w printable
