3 different Short /i/ Centers
Print word cards on cardstock and laminate.
Center Option 1: Place cards in a pile. Players will draw one card from the pile. If they can read the word correctly, they can keep the card. If they cannot read the word correctly, they place the card back on the bottom of the pile. If they draw a “Reindeer Roundup” card, the player must put all of their cards back in the pile. The player with the most cards after all the cards are drawn wins!
Center Option 2: (Real Word Cards Only) Place cards in a pile. Students draw a card, read the word, and then record it on their sheet in the appropriate column based on its ending.
Center Option 3: (Need Real and Nonsense Word Cards) Place cards in a pile. Stu-dents draw a card, read the word, and then record it on their sheet in the appropri-ate column based on whether it is a real word or nonsense word.
