This is the "short a" version of my Arctic Freeze Short Vowel Packet. Your students will enjoy playing variations of "Uno", "Go Fish" or "Memory" all with this set of 36 cards! Challenge your students to then sort the words by word family and record the words on the sorting/record worksheet included. This is perfect for Kindergarten and First Grade, as well as, your RTI groups. After learning how to play the games with an adult, students will enjoy playing independently in literacy tubs! The sorting/recording sheet provides a challenge for students as well as a record for you to track your students independent work. Your students will have fun while reinforcing sounds.
