I created this packet to help my kiddos as we progress from short vowels to long vowels. This packet focuses primarily on -cvc style words vs. -vce style words. So students are simply focusing on "bossy -e" long vowel words, not double vowel (vowel team) kind of words. It is pretty basic and can aide as simply practice, morning work, etc. The kiddos sort their words simply as to whether they are short or long. There are 9 specific pages in this packet to help you as you transition. Here is how I created it...and my intentions for each page:
- Pages 1 and 2: are two different sorts that focus on using a short vowel word, and then placing a "bossy -e" on the end. So example words: "can" turns into "cane", "hop" turns into "hope", etc. I placed these two pages at the beginning because I feel like this is a good way of beginning to introduce basic bossy -e words.
- Page 3: short a vs long a (bossy -e)
- Page 4: short e vs long e (as we all know there are not a ton of bossy -e words that go with long e, so I pulled a few, but then included some double vowels that should also aide a high frequency words when reading, such as: see, me, we, the)
- Page 5: short i vs long i (bossy -e)
- Page 6: short o vs long o (bossy -e)
- Page 7: short u vs long u (bossy -e)
- Pages 8 and 9: mixed review (incorporating a variety of short and long vowel words)
