This lesson contains three center based activities that are differentiated for your students. These activities are for your early readers , they also work well for special needs students and ESL classes. Each activitiy only focuses on short vowel sounds- CVC words. The games help students with the medial sounds in a three letter word. I have have found that children who are dyslexic benefit from color coded words.
The three center acitivites are:
Game1- Vowel flash cards- have your students write down as many words as they know for the vowel card displayed.
Game2- Word cards- find as many CVC words on the card- connect the letters to form words.
Game3- vowel mats- Have students cut out cvc words and place on the correct vowel mat at each center.
