Making Magic Words {Short Vowels}

Making Magic Words {Long Vowels}


Magic Words is a fun twist on a classic making words activity.
I like to give my kiddos a magic wand {a pointer} and have them say ‘Abracadabra’ before they read each new word!

Magic Words is perfect for Word Work in literacy centers! These making words activities can be used to work with intervention students in a small group or as a Word Work choice!

This activity includes a page of letters used to make new words.

*Short vowel activities include one page for a, e, i, o, and u.

*Long vowel activities include one page for a, e, i, o, and u and follow the vowel-consonant-e pattern, with the exception of e which follows the ea, ee pattern.*

Your kiddos can use magnetic letters, letter tiles, or the included printable letter squares, to make new words!

My hope is that this product saves you some precious planning time and that your kiddos have fun reading, blending, and making new words!

Thanks so much for looking!

I would love to answer any questions or hear your feedback!
