Short Vowels and Long Vowels Game - Snowman SPLAT!

Looking for a fun way for your students to practice their short and long vowel word families, vowel pairs, and rhyming? Need something other than more worksheets? Try SPLAT!

SPLAT is a fun and engaging game played similarly to slap jack. Students divide up the cards and take turns turning over their top card. If the cards rhyme they need to "SPLAT" their cards first, trying to get the cards for their pile.

***Note: This is my short vowel SPLAT and long vowel SPLAT bundled together!
