I am passionate about finding ways to keep your whole class engaged as you use your smartboard or projector. This resource is sure to be a HIT with your students! The "whack-a-mole" theme is fun and motivating. Sound effects and animations will keep your kiddos focused and engaged. Make simple mallets for your class using pool noodles and pencils and let them whack mats to choose their answers. For even more kinesthetic fun, make large mats for students to stomp on.
This set includes two PowerPoints that focus on R-Controlled Vowel sounds (ar, er, ir, or, and ur). The slides show a picture and word that contain an r-controlled vowel but the vowel sound is missing. Students must whack the mole with the missing vowel sound. Click the mallet to show the answer on your board. Both PowerPoints focus on the same skill, but have different words. There are 21 words in each PowerPoint. There are also printable mats and directions to make mallets, mats, and pads to stomp on. I am currently working on a variety of other skills that will be added to growing bundles.
