This is a collection of eight different activities to teach the short o sound. They are based on the Language Arts Common Core Standards for Kindergarten. This unit is meant to last two weeks. I will be uploading more two week units for all vowel sounds (long and short) soon.
*Short O Word Sliders: Students manipulate the beginning and ending sounds of short o cvc words to create a list of short o words.
*Short O cvc Word Game: Students play with a partner and must navigate through a game board containing short o words.
*Short O Crossword Puzzle: Students play a fun game to review the short o sound and then complete a short o crossword puzzle.
*Short O Sentence Scramble: Students must unscramble 3 different short o sentences and draw pictures to match.
*Short O Book Illustration (Frogs That Hop): Students must read a short o story and illustrate the book to match the words. Teachers can easily check for understanding through the students' illustrations.
*Short O Coloring Book (On Top of the Log): Students color the pictures in a story containing short o words. Students also practice sight words and whole language techniques. A teacher's guide with comprehension questions is included.
*Short O Bingo: Students play bingo using short o words.
*Short O Writing: Students collaborate to create a list of short o words and write a story using those words.
