This activity can be used as a center or for independent practice. Students will practice listening for the short medial vowel in CVC words. You can have students lay out the vowels and then sort the pictures to the matching vowel that is missing. Once they have sorted them they then can write in the missing vowel on their recording sheet. Another way to use the activity is to have students pick a card and then put a magnet letter in the missing letter square and then fill in their recording sheet. This center is a great activity to do around Halloween.
