It seems that I am always looking for materials to practice our phonics skills. Although our phonics program is strong, there are not extra materials for practice. I created this pack to provide extra activities for the skills that so many students need to review and practice. These activities can be used as morning work, assessment, in learning stations, small group learning, RTI, homework, etc. There are 18 different activities in this pack!
This Packet Includes:
Short a Word Sort
Students will sort the short a cheese words by word families. Then they will write the answers on the Short a Word Sort recording sheet. Great for Learning Stations.

Students will read the story Pat the Rat. They will highlight and write the short a words found in the story.

Students will cut the letters out and use the letters to spell the words that go with each picture.
