Looking for a Thanksgiving activity for your Center or Station that aligns with your curriculum? Thanksgiving Short Vowel Words may be just what you're looking for!
Thanksgiving Short Vowel Words contains 38 mats for your students to build short vowel words. Students can build words to match pictures on the mats in two ways. First, they use the feathers and complete the turkey. Then they use letter tiles in the space provided. (LETTER TILES NOT PROVIDED) If you don’t own letter tiles, they can be purchased at Amazon.com.
Two forms of Student Response sheets are provided. The teacher has the choice of how the students use the resource: as a whole, or broken into smaller sets. Students record their answers on the Student Response Sheet. More advanced students may be equipped to deal with all 38 mats, or students could be assigned all 38 over several days. Less advanced, or organized students, may need them broken down into smaller sets, so the Student Response Sheet for 10 words may be appropriate.
The mats can be used as a one-on-one or small group instructional tool for students that are struggling with the concept of short vowel words. The building of the short vowel word can be modeled with the letter tiles and then written on the laminated mat with an erasable marker. The student then uses that aid to build their own word on the turkey and write their word on their response sheet.
6 additional practice pages are also included.
* 1 students choose the correct word
* 1 students unscramble the letters to form a word
* 4 students write the word to match the picture
