There are several ways to play the short vowel BINGO games included in this packet. You can do a game that focuses on one short vowel sound, or a game that focuses on all five short vowel sounds. Game boards can be a 25 square grid or a 9 square grid. These games can be used both in small groups and with a whole class.
The students make their own game boards. Each student is given a sheet of word cards based on your focus area. They cut out the cards and use them to fill in their boards (depending on the size of the board you use, there will be extra cards). The word card sheets are designed so that the top half only has CVC words and the bottom half has CCVC and CVCC words. Depending on the needs of your students, you may choose to copy the whole sheet, or simply just the top or bottom half.
You can use the word cards sheet to call out words. Or, also included is a set of larger word cards for each game, in case you want to call out words this way. You can place these in a pocket chart or under an Elmo once a word is called. This will completely depend on your students’ needs.
