This book helps students learn the short /a/ sound and also high frequency words. This book focuses on the identifying the short /a/ sound.
This is a 8 page book that is easy to make. Print the desired amount (there are 2 books per download), copy the desired amount, cut in half, and staple.
This book is great for interactive writing and also as an individual activity. Before the students get their own individual books, we do a whole group writing lesson using the same sentences with the target word not spelled out for them. As a whole group the students must sound out the words and spell them. This helps teach spelling patterns.
Then, the students get their individual books and circle the short /a/ sound and the targeted high frequency words.
