This phonics center consists of:
10 short vowel word families on Phonics Mats: 2 of each of the 5 short vowels. -an, -at, -ell, -ed, -ig, -it, -ock, -og, -ug, -unk
8 Raindrop Pictures to sort on each of the 10 word family mats. 6 raindrop pictures that match the word family and rhyme. Then 2 that do not rhyme and do not have the same word family. A total of 80 Raindrop Pictures.
8 small flashcard words that name the Raindrop Pictures for each set. A total of 80 flashcard words.
10 Recording Sheets for the student(s) to write the answers for each word family sort.
Instructions: Copy and laminate the 10 Phonics Word Family Mats. Cut out the 80 Raindrops and put in 10 baggies. They are numbered for easy organization. Cut apart the word flashcards and put with the raindrops. Copy Recording Sheets on regular copy paper for student work.
To play: Differentiate by choosing the number of mats to give out. Easy Sort: Give out only one mat and raindrop set. Harder Sort: Mix up 2 or more of the Raindrop Sets and give out the sorting mats. Students are to sort the pictures first on the Phonics Mat. If they rhyme and have the same word family put on the left side but if they don’t rhyme then they go on the right hand side of the mat. Next students will need to match the words with the pictures by putting them next to each other. Last, students will fill out the recording sheet(s).
