Onset and Rime Short Vowels Printables

This phonics resource is a hands-on activity that will introduce your students to the word list for each set of CVC words. The students will begin learning these words by seeing the picture and word. Then they take the words to the next step by sorting them by the short vowel sound. The guided practice has been differentiated to meet the levels of your students. You choose and assign what your students are ready to work on.

Anchor Charts have been included to model and define for students what an onset is and what a rime is, teaching academic vocabulary.

There are 5 sets of words.

Set 1-ab, eg, en, in, ot, ub, ug, ut

Set 2-am, at, et, ip, it, op, ud, un

Set 3-an, ap, ed, ig, ip, it, op, ut

Set 4-ag, ed, en, ig, og, ot, up, un

Set 5-ad, at, et, ip, og, op, ud, ut

Each set includes:

  • Homework Word Trace
  • Short Vowel Sort
  • Match Rime to Onset
  • Match Onset to Rime
  • Match Onsets and Rimes

Answer keys are included.

My goal is to make your job just a little bit easier!
