Differentiated Short A CVC Centers

If you are anything like me, you scramble week after week to find plenty of quality center activities for students to practice with CVC words! I created these centers so that I wouldn’t have to scramble anymore! Several of these activities are EDITABLE — most notably, the word sorts so that you can customize the word families that your class is working on! This resource is also differentiated to cover different levels of learning.

There are 8 activities for each word family and 4 short a activities {that mixes all short a word families}. All together, there are 52 word family activities that will not take you any time to set up. Teach them once and you can change them out for the rest of the year! There are plenty of recording sheet choices included for easy differentiation.

This pack covers the following short a word families: -ad, -ag, -am, -an, -ap, -at

8 Word Family Activities for EACH word family mentioned above:

• 4 different CVC cards — one with just the pictures, one with words and pictures, one with word, pictures, and dots for students to stretch out and combine sounds, and one with just the words. There are 4 different card game suggestions included.

• BUMP! - A versatile partner game

• Word Family Building Strips - have students use letter tiles, cubes, magnetic letters, or dry erase markers to build their words. Also included are black and white versions if you prefer to have your students use pens, markers, or stamps for this activity.

• Roll, Read, Keep or Roll, Write, Keep - two different versions of this game are included for differentiation.


• My Word Family Mini Book - this mini book has 4 pages of practice activities

• Say It, Trace It, Build It, Write It - this activity has students practicing writing the word, building it with the letters that are included, and writing the word on their own

• Stamp It - Students will practice with variations of missing letters for each word family word.

• Match It, Trace It, Read It - students will read a simple sentence and will match the picture to the sentence.

Also included are the following 4 Short A Word Family activities {all word families combined}:

• Roll & Write - I have included card inserts for each short a word family {-ad, -ag, -am, -an, -ap, -at} to use with large differentiation dice {found on Amazon} as well as consonant letters. I have also included an EDITABLE die template in case you do not have the dice. You can type in whichever beginning letters you want your students to practice with! A recording sheet for this activity is included.

• I Spy - simply print, laminate and cut out these mats for students to find the words in each specified word family. Differentiated recording sheets are included.

• Word Family Ladder Strips - simply print, cut, and laminate these word ladders. Students can use dry erase markers, tiles, cubes, or magnetic letters to change the first letter in each word to spell a new word. I have also included these in B&W in case you want students to use stamps, markers, or pens to complete these.

• EDITABLE Picture/Word Sorts! - YOU choose the two word families you want your students to sort. There are three different recording sheets for differentiation.

Other Word Family packs are in the works and will be bundled once complete.
