Phonics-Short Vowels Practice
BUNDLED Blending Words and Sentence Fluency
See all five individual centers for more information. By purchasing this bundle of all five, you will save $1.50.
Kindergarten and First Grade are the appropriate levels for this product. It would be an excellent product to use in special education and RTI programs.
This activity can be used in a small group or one on one setting, and would be perfect for a classroom literacy center as word work.
It could easily be used with a classroom because it is great review practice and the pages could even be sent as homework practice.
The pages can be used as single handouts for decoding practice in the classroom. Or put into small booklets for students to do word work at a literacy center. Booklet covers are included for this option.
The slinky sound straw and the fold over flap make this a fun activity for kindergarten and first grade students.
It is concrete blending practice with instant feedback when the hidden picture is revealed by unfolding the flap.
A very big plus is that students have a beginning, middle, and ending place for the left to right slide of their reading finger as they blend the letter sounds. No more covered up letters with little fingers.
Another huge plus is the slinky straw helps in teaching the stretching out of sounds . The understanding of the continuous air flow( like in a straw) of the segmented letter sounds helps in the producing- hearing and decoding of the blended word .
And best yet, is when the folded flap is opened and students know instantly if they are right or wrong in word identification.
This product targets all five short vowels within words and sentences.
Print on cardstock and laminate if using in a small group. Cut just the length of the sentence box, only 3 times, where the small arrows indicate on each page and fold. Use the smallest velcro coins for the fold over flaps to stick. Run on regular copy paper if using for a whole class. Give students double stick tape or nothing for the fold over flaps.
It lends easily to differentiation as pages can be used as single copies or put into small booklets using various numbers of pages.
Thank you for looking. I appreciate it. I believe this product to be effective and a great reading ruby! Happy teaching!
