Scooping Up Middle Sounds! Short Vowel Edition
A perfect Spring or End of the Year activity/center! Students can practice reading and writing words with short middle vowels sounds by building their own ice cream cones by matching the words on the ice cream scoops to the picture on the cones! This activity can be used in literacy centers, as a small group activity for extra practice, and can even be used in a sensory bin! Long middle vowel sounds coming soon, so make sure you follow my TpT store for updates on my new products!


12 pictures/words for each short vowel sound for a total of 60 words!

Short /a/: bag, cab, fan, cap, bat, dad, ham, hat, map, mad, jam, rat

Short /e/: bed, hen, jet, leg, men, net, pen, pet, red, ten, vet, web
