For each vowel unit, there are a variety of engaging activities ideal for center work, independent practice, your whole or small group reading lessons. Activities include:
-I Can Spell a Short ___ Word: Students look at the picture, encode each sound, and write it 2 times
-Short vowel word family houses: Use these to generate word families.
-Mix it, Fix it, Write It: Students unscramble the words to make a short vowel word and write the word correctly in pencil then in rainbow colors. I recommend providing students with letter magnets for this activity so they can manipulate the letters. 2 pages are included for each short vowel: one CVC and one CCVC (blends/digraphs).
