-Roll, Say, Keep game mats with 2 different word cards (one with just words and one with words and pic clue for differentiation/scaffolding) and a response sheet
- word work/word building cards and coordinating mats- children look at the picture, spell the word then check the card to see if they got the spelling correct(self checking). Then, they write the word, using a dry erase marker

-“The bubble wand Game”- bubbles with “ow” that you put on a “wand” (straw or popsicle stick) and the children use the wand to supply the “ow” to the words as they read. This is a great warm up for guided reading. I have also included directions for using it as a 3rd “Write the Room” activity or center. I have also included a student response sheet.
-Round Robin (Kagan Structure) “Blowing Bubbles Round Robin!” reading ow words group game (And instructions on how to use/do this structure with your class with this game incase you are unfamiliar with it! Game is great for small groups to use at the same time and you can do a quick check for mastery! Or use in a center or small guided reading group. I have included 2 types of cards (with and without pic prompts) for differentiation/scaffolding.
I have also included 25 different worksheets/printables that include: word building, word to pic matching, writing words with “ow”, read and draw, spin to win, flip books, mixed up sentences and writing prompts with “ow” words.
So many fun ways to teach and practice the “ow” spelling pattern of the long o sound! Your kids will be learning and having fun! Win-win!
