This second grade phonics pack focuses on long and short vowel sounds, and common vowel team conventions for representing long vowel sounds.
Included in this pack: Spin and Write sheets, Interactive Notebook flap sheets, Short to Long Vowel Sound sheets (change a word by adding one letter), Roll, Read, Color sheets (blackline and color), Vowel Books, and Sound Chart.
The long vowel flip flap sheets can be used in a Reading/Language Arts Interactive Notebook, or glued onto an A4 backing sheet. The title rectangle can be cut out and glued to the top of the page. Cut out the whole outer flip flap rectangle; fold along the vertical line to the right of the word list; then cut along the horizontal lines between the flaps. Glue the word list rectangle onto the backing sheet. The student reads all the words in the word list, rolls a dice, chooses a word from the appropriate long vowel digraph group, and writes it under the matching flap. The race is to see which flap is the first to have the ten group words written underneath it. The options for each dice roll are displayed on the flaps.
The racing process of the first two activities adds a fun component. The students are not racing against each other ~ they are racing to see which word group finishes first. Coloring the sheets also adds to the enjoyment.
Other phonics concepts can be reinforced with these literacy activities, e.g., consonant blends and digraphs.
