Short A CVC Words Roll Centers where students roll the dice to make short a CVC words! Then, they either cover them or color them - depending on the style you choose to play - on their mat!
These is just like my best selling CVC Words Roll
center except these focus only on short A word families!
I also have these for:
Short E CVC Words Roll
Short I CVC Words Roll
Short O CVC Words Roll
Short U CVC Words Roll
or grab them all in the CVC Word Rolls BUNDLE
to save over 20%!
This is also included in the
Short Vowels ULTIMATE BUNDLE
which has SO many fun short vowels resources!
There are FOUR different sets of centers included!
1) All 6 word families: -at, -an, -ag, -am, -ad, -ap
2) -am & -at only
3) -ap & -an only
4) -ad & -ag only
Each set has its own dice, student friendly directions sheets, 5 Roll and Color mats, and 5 Roll and Cover mats.... that's a lot of short a CVC practice!! The dice set that practices all 6 word families has an extra 5 bonus mats so there are 2 different levels (more / less pictures on the mat). So you can easily differentiate by starting out with doing each word families set that practices 2 at a time until you learn them all... and then review all of them with the set that has all 6 families!
I am so excited to offer these for the individual short vowels so you can play them right away starting at the beginning of the year instead of waiting until they've learned all of the short vowel sounds to do the CVC words roll!

Here's how it works....
Students roll the 2 dice to make their word. They keep the dice in the right color order that their directions sheet tells them to which they'll easily remember after a few rolls. There is the first letter of the color order in the top right corner of their paper to remind them as well - and you can have them color those in before they start too for even more support. There are A LOT of short a words to read with these activities BUT the beauty is that even when the rolls that don't produce a real short a word, they're still practicing blending short a "words" which is awesome nonsense word practice!
After they roll the dice, they read the word they made. If it is a real word and on their sheet, they COLOR it in. You can give students their own sheet to color in or have students share a sheet and each use a certain color (for example, Student A colors in pictures red and Student B colors in pictures blue) and the first to get a line wins! I recommend giving them their own sheet because there may be so much blocking that no one wins. You can also play where they fill the sheet and whoever has the most wins.
There is also a Roll and COVER version of each gameboard in full color so students can use these again and again. Students will need their own color marker/piece (I recommend counting cubes or red/yellow counters) so when they roll a word, they cover it. It's up to you if you want to allow bumping or not! Bumping is when a child gets a spot that is already covered and can bump the other person off.
