Ready Set SPLAT! CVCe and VCCV
Here is a lively and distinctive activity to practice word patterns. This activity can be use as a whole group lesson, small group lesson, or performance-based assessment. Give one student the CVCe swatter and another student the VCCV swatter. Students will turn around so that they can not see the cards being placed face-up on the table. The Score/Time Keeper will place cards face-up. Set the timer. (Decide on an adequate time.) When the Score/Time Keeper gives the signal to begin, students will turn around and begin swatting the flies with the same pattern that is on their fly swatter.
Ready Set SPLAT! CVCe and VCCV activity set includes word pattern swatters, word pattern cards, score sheet, and a checking for understanding worksheet.
1. Use the swatters to find similar word patterns around the room.
2. Divide the words into syllables.
3. Use Ready Set SPLAT! as a whole group power point lesson. Students can take turns going to the board to swat.....flies.
