When you introduce long vowels do your students suddenly start putting a "sneaky e" at the end of everything? Reinforce CVCe and long vowel spelling patterns with this engaging word work activity, perfect for building both reading and spelling skills.

Plus, having your students beg for more word work time is always a #teacherwin!

These Highlight and Record pages go beyond just long vowel phonics worksheets by adding in a sense of fun. What "word detective" doesn't love using a highlighter to search for evidence?

This literacy activity has students read sentences and short stories while highlighting targeted CVCe long vowels and vowel teams. Then, they can sort the words into the correct category by spelling pattern. Practice is available at both the sentence and story level to help apply phonics skills.

This Long Vowel Word Work Activity Includes:

15 Single Sound Review Pages (CVCe sneaky e word families, vowel teams)

✅ 32 Mixed Review Pages (mixed spelling patterns and sounds for sorting)

✅ Review at both the sentence and story level

✅ Mini Anchor Charts

✅ Color Coded Answer Keys


Suggested Uses:

✎ Small group word work practice on targeted sounds

✎ Homework, Morning Work, Station Work
