This file contains common core practice sheets for all of the short vowels and additional sheets for some combined word families (ick, ock, ing and ong for one and est, eck ell ent for another) Students use the rimes at the top of the page to complete the word that matches each picture. These practice sheets go with my "1-2-3 Words for ME" phonics/phonemic awareness/word work/word study program, but can also be used separately as practice sheets. I will be offerring the short u "Words for Me' lesson as a freebie as soon as I get the cover sheet completed. Watch for it and give it a try. Kids love it and it is very effective, especially with struggling learners.
