I created this to work with students on their basic reading skills. I have used it in our summer literacy program, and it worked well. The teacher calls out a word with a particular short vowel sound and the student colors the words particular colors based upon the sound. The first word is cvc words and the second page is cvcc or ccvc words. I have given extra options for making this activity more fun for the students, but our students enjoyed reading this way. It has been helpful in improving their ability to read words correctly. They can also take this home with them and continue to work on these words at home.
