Busy Bags are bags filled with fun, engaging games and activities that will motivate your students (and their parents) to practice at home. This set includes all the cards, game boards, and mats you will need to assemble your very own Short Vowels Busy Bag! These activities and games will provide your students with the opportunity to practice recognizing, blending, segmenting, and building CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words.
The activities included in this set are:
*Spin-Read-Cover - develops segmenting, sound isolation, and blending skills
*Roll and Read – develops blending, sight word recognition, and fluency skills
*Making words – develops segmentation skills
*Sorting – develops sound isolation, segmentation, blending, and critical thinking skills
*Stampede! - develops segmenting and blending skills
*Word Collection – develops pattern recognition and critical thinking skills
Every game comes with a procedural page that not only defines game play, but also offers tips and tricks for making the most of each practice opportunity. The included Practice Passport will allow your students to keep track of their practice efforts. The great thing about Busy Bags is that their use is not limited to at-home practice! These activities make great word work additions to any center or workshop rotations.
I have seen an incredible increase in student confidence and skills through the use of these structured practice activities at home. I hope that your students and parents have as much fun practicing these important skills using this Busy Bag as mine have!
