How can you make reading short vowel words fun? Play "lotto"! This packet of three different lotto games and word sorts can be very useful for helping your kids blend and develop fluency with the consonant-vowel-consonant pattern.
This versatile pack contains suggestions and directions for other word activities as well. These word study and word work activities can easily be built into your literacy stations so that kids can work in small groups.
Included are 3 different sets (Sets A, B, C) with mats for 6 students--each set comes in both color and black/white. The color version has highlighted "red" vowels for students who need the extra visual representation of the vowels.Set C includes all 5 vowels, whereas A and B focus on a few of them at a time--especially since the sounds for e and i are often confused, as are vowel sounds for a and i.
Each set has a separate call sheet for words that are on all lotto boards. This way, every child must find and read the word that is called out.
Sorting is another activity which helps reinforce spelling, as well as reading. Key pictures for key words that go with each vowel sound are included. Students may cut up their words (black and white version) and sort according to vowel sounds--placing words on top of the corresponding pictures.
(There are 2 different sets of key pictures so that you may choose to use either iguana or igloo for short i.)
Another fun activity is to use duplicate sets for a matching or memory game. More ideas are included in this resource. You may enjoy creating different activities for your literacy center using this packet.
This is more than a Bingo game, although it can be played much like Bingo. The difference is, you can use the words and create more than just one activity for practicing short vowel words.
Reading Foundation Skills: This set fosters common core related skills for developing basic phonic skills.
