This motivating super hero-themed unit helps teach, practice, monitor, and assess reading and writing CVC words with the short-a vowel sound.
Students will be introduced to “Super Jan”, a first grade student with secret super powers in an introductory read-aloud. Jan must save her friend Pam from the villain “Bad Granny” to save the day.
Students will then be given the mission to help Super Jan capture Bad Granny by completing word work practice assignments and demonstrating their understanding of reading and writing CVC words with short-a by achieving 80% mastery on a reading and spelling test. Students will earn Super Sound Power by mastering the standard and will make a hero costume to celebrate their success.
