This short vowel unit gives students lots of practice reading short vowels words with beginning consonants, blends, and digraphs. Students spin two spinners to create words. Students decide if the words are real or nonsense and sort them into the appropriate categories. There is a space for students to use their words in a sentence. These activities are great to use during the Daily 5, whole group, small groups, literacy centers, and as RTI for struggling students.
This unit contains 2 intitial consonant, 2 initial blend, 2 initial digraph, and 2 mixed beginning pages for each short vowel as well as a section with mixed vowels. This packet lends itself easily to differentiation as your students' needs change and grow.
There are also blank pages at the end to use for your students as you see fit.
