When our students become proficient in the single syllable words, they will also become proficient in decoding longer words. This Double Slider Set is a fun, hands-on way for students to learn and practice reading/spelling long vowel words! They will challenge students to use their spelling skills to complete a variety of long vowel words, using vowel letter strips. Students will manipulate the strips on each card, to spell long vowel words.
This set is designed to help your students become better readers by mastering decoding skills. It includes 9 hands on Double Slide a Word Cards for your students to practice their long vowel family skills and familiar chunks in words. Each card has two slots for the strips of letters. Strips with blends and digraphs are also included along with blank templates for students to make their own words.
Copy them on card stock, laminate and cut out the shape. I suggest copying multiple copies of the strips for each card. They will also look nice copied on colored card stock. Use a sharp knife to cut along the black lines then place a strip from the back through the front. The students will be able to slide the strip to reveal letters to form words. You can also make a laminated set and provide dry erase markets to use as wipe off mats for your students.
The accompanying matching worksheet allows the students to write words they made and a sentence. Students can also draw pictures for the words they made. These versatile cards can be used in your word work and literacy centers as well as your guided groups.
These are the included word families:
-oa-, -ee-, -ea-, -ai-, -oo-, _a_e, _o_e, _i_e, _u_e
(CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.1.3c) Know final -e and common vowel team conventions for representing long vowel sounds
