This set contains over 165 short vowel words with 23 different word families! This game is great for small group practice or instruction. Excellent resource for Guided Reading, Daily 5, Literacy Centers, or intervention. As an extension this set includes sorting headers that can be used with these popcorn cards. Students will participate in a word pattern sort to solidify the understanding that every short vowel word has a word pattern ending (word family). There is also an activity mat that can be laminated and used for students to write down their list of popcorn words as they play.
1. Pick a popcorn card.
2. Read the word on the card. If you read it correctly keep it in your popcorn pile.
3. If you pick a POP card put all of your pieces back.
Bonus Round: Use the sorting cards to sort all of the popcorn pieces as quickly as you can by word pattern. Remember to say the word first.
*Laminate this set for durability!
