Are you looking for an engaging activity to teach bossy r's? These phonics worksheets allow students to practice decoding r controlled vowels, search for and highlight examples in text, and read for fluency. Most importantly, kids will be requesting this literacy activity once you introduce highlighters!
Sentences use basic sight words and decodable text to help build independent readers. After identifying sounds and spelling patterns, students can then sort the words into the correct category. Practice at both the sentence and story level to apply phonemic awareness and phonics skills.
This activity works best for K-2 students, depending on their reading abilities or RTI groups. English Language Learners also benefit from the targeted sound practice. I like to use these pages during small groups in my classroom, as spelling homework, morning work, whole group phonics lessons while projected on the board, or as differentiated independent work during literacy stations. Answer keys are included for each page for your convenience or to help create a self-checking literacy center.
22 Single Sound Review Pages (both at the sentence and story level)
5 Mixed Review Pages
Color Coded Answer Keys
Mini- Anchor Charts (one per vowel)
