Product Description
This CVC short vowel pack provides you with 11 activities the help you to teach and reinforce the short 'o' vowel sound with multiple opportunities to practice reading, writing, and building the short a sound in CVC words. Learning to easily read CVC words is an important part of reading process as it enables our students to quickly see the 'chunks' in bigger words, which in turn aids them in the decoding process.

I created this series as my own class were struggling with learning and understanding sounding out their short words and listening to the sounds each letter made to know the word. They needed plenty of exposure to each sound grouping to get a good grasp of the concepts including; reading, writing, matching, building, tracing and hearing missing sounds.

I tend to spend a week on each sound family and have provided enough activities for center and small group time to allow for plenty of practice. Each week starts off with the word family cards for our pocket chart. These words stay up all week and allow the students to easily refer back to them for clarification as they work through the different CVC activities.

As we get to the end of the word families I start mixing the activities up so that they a pushed a little harder to figure out which word family they are working with.

This pack is part of a series of CVC Short Vowel activities. Each pack has the same activities and format so it is familiar to my students and less time is spent on teaching them how to do the activities and more time is spent on doing the activities.

Each CVC pack has:
★ Word and word family cards for the Short O including op, og, ob, ot, ox, od (& mom). These cards are used for our pocket chart but can also be used as a sorting activity, write the room activity or Splat Game. Splat is similar to snap where students put their cards down 1 by 1 and call splat when there are two from the same short a family.
★ Read and clip the correct word - each card has the picture and students read the words and clip or mark the word that matches the picture
★ Words cards - these cards have the word, word picture and the word in a simple sentence.
★ create the word - 3 part jigsaw for each word
★ Read and Match - read the short a word card and find the matching picture - this can also be used as a word family sorting activity.
★ Read it, build it (or stamp), trace it and write it (pack also has supplied letter tiles)
★ Sound box cards - missing middle letter/sound (supplied letter tiles) I use these first during small group time to really emphasize the vowel sound in each word.
★ Sound box cards - missing beginning sound strip cards
★ Sound box cards - missing end sound strip cards
★ Build it word cards - strip cards with letter boxes - each card has the word picture to aid students sounding out and spelling the word (tiles included)
★ Worksheet set 1 - this set has the picture and 3 word choices for student to pick the correct word and then write the word (note this works as a laminated center as well)
★ Worksheet set 2 - cut and paste - students cut out the pictures and match and glue them with the correct word.
★ Word posters - each poster shows the words for each family group - can be printed full size or reduced to suit your wall space requirements - I put these posters up once we have finished the short vowel sound before moving onto the next short vowel family so my students can have reference to them throughout.

This pack is also available as part of a bundle with all the Short Vowel families. If you buy the bundle you will save money on buying the packs individually. Click HERE to access the bundle.

Also included in this pack is the worksheets with UK spelling for colour (suitable for UK, New Zealand, Canada, Australia)
