In this packet you will find 22 sheets of activities and assessments to help your students master 8 words of the short vowel word family: (-at) ... All activities are Common Core aligned and easy to use. Just run on plain paper and laminate for easy and extended use.
For mastering this word family, you will get:
• 2 Word Wall Posters with pictures that can be used to display for students. I usually run these and just tape the two sheets together to display on my board. I have a colleague who likes to cut them apart and put them into her pocket chart. Each word is accompanied with a picture for young learners to build vocabulary. This is made so that you may want to fold back the picture to see if your students can read the list without the pictures.
• Word/Picture Puzzle Match. For this I run an extra copy of the word wall posters, cut them apart and have students to match the word to the picture it represents during center time.
• Build a Word Sheets to put into magnetic letter centers. You will have two copies to differentiate for your students. One copy has the word already built for students to match letters to, while one is blank for students to build the word by blending. Just laminate and lay on your cookie sheet for the perfect magnet center.
• Write a Word Center sheets for those students who need extra practice writing those words. Here again you will have a dotted line practice sheet as well as a blank for students to write by memory to spell the word.
• Build a Word Cut and Paste. This allows students to blend and build the word in a turn in version so that you may check students’ abilities to blend and spell the word.
• Onset/Rime Word Blending Mat: I use these with small groups, as well as, individual students to practice word blending.
• Pocket Chart Word Building Pictures and Cards. This will include the picture as well as the letter cards for students to build the words.
• Two assessment sheets: One where students cut the word from below and paste to match the picture. The other where students write the word to match the picture.
