This game was designed to accompany the Words Their Way program (Sort 40, Letter Name). However, it is a great reinforcement of short vowels e, i, o, and u in CVC words for all students! The students have to spin the spinner, identify the short vowel sound, and hop to different lily pads that match the sound. The first one to spin short o and get to STOP! wins. It is a great way for young learners to internalize their vowel sounds.
