This resource contains 4 different fall themed phonics sets to help your students practice reading VCV words, words with beginning blends, VCCV words, and open/closed syllables.
Open syllable, closed syllable, and VCCV word sort with apple theme:
27 closed syllables on apples, 9 open syllables on apples, and 18 VCCV words on apples. Students read the word/syllable and put on corresponding apple tree. The apple cards alone are great to just review reading these words/syllables in small groups. Blank apples are also included to add words of your own.
VCCV Fall Leaves Theme:
6 large leaves for writing words with dry-erase markers (I did VCCV words.) 36 VCCV word cards (only short vowels). Students can use dry-erase marker to divide the word into its two syllables (underline the talking vowel sounds, mark them with a v, swoop between the vowels, pull down the consonants and mark them with a c, divide according to the pattern: between the consonants). These cards are great for small guided reading groups when working on VCCV words. Blank cards are also included to include words of your own.
3 sorting mats for l blends, r blends, and s blends (including 3 letter clusters), 72 words with beginning blends on pumpkins. These cards are great for word study for students to discover patterns in the words. They are also great for a center or small group activity for students to sort. I also use the word cards alone to read words with blends in my guided reading groups. I can do this as a whole group or pass out several cards to each student and they read them individually. If the cards are laminated, students can circle or underline the blend with dry-erase markers. A set of blank pumpkins are also included for you to add your own words.
114 CVC words on acorns (digraphs included), 5 full page sorting mats for short vowels with fall tree/acorn theme, 1 page sorting mat with all 5 five vowels on single page. This is a great center activity for students to sort CVC sounds according to the vowel. I use these cards for reviewing CVC words in small groups as well as with volunteers who are helping provide interventions. A blank set of acorn are included for you to add your own words as needed.
