In these lessons I tell my students that they CAN read! This is great to do once your students are fairly familiar with the sounds of the alphabet. Students will be saying words slowly to hear sounds and put them together to make words. Then they read words on their own to complete a worksheet.
Word cards and picture cards for a,e,i, o and u medial CVC words
Worksheets for independent practice
Students can say words slowly to read words and find the matching picture. Or, they may look at the picture, say the sounds and find the matching word. There are 5 activities and 5 matching worksheets.
**Fun addition: To change it up, I gave each kid in my class one of the word or picture cards. After thinking about the sounds in the word or picture they had, they had to find their match in the class!
