What child (or teacher) can resist feeding these cute monsters while practicing phonics skills? This resource has been created as an activity to use on the Smartboard as a fun way for your students to practice reading long & short vowel words you have previously taught. It can be used as a whole-class or small group activity. You must have the latest version (11) of the Notebook software for the Smartboard installed on your computer, as the lessons use one of the newest features called the Activity Builder.
This notebook contains 20 slides:
- Set 1 has 5 slides. There are 5 boxes and two monsters on each slide. In each box are two vowel pairs - a short vowel word and a long vowel word. The student chooses and reads the word pairs from the box and decides which one has the short vowel sound and which has the long vowel sound. He/she then moves the word to the tummy of either the short vowel monster or long vowel monster. If the answer is correct, it will disappear and you will hear the monster munch each word.
- Set 2 has 5 slides. There are 10 word and two monsters on each slide. A student chooses and reads any word and moves it to the tummy of either the short vowel monster or long vowel monster. If the answer is correct, it will disappear and you will hear the monster munch the word.
- Set 3 has 10 slides. There are 10 words with all 10 monsters on each slide. A student chooses any word and moves it to the tummy of the monster with the same vowel sound. If the answer is correct, it will disappear and you will hear the monster munch the word.

*** This product is very similar to the one offered for the Promethean board. I have adapted it to the Smart Notebook software for those who use this technology.
