Product Description
This *NO-PREP* Phonics Packet has you covered with 100 pages of phonics fun!!

Many eager new readers want to fast track their reading, diving right into words, yet struggling to make sense of the letters. While this enthusiasm is natural (and great!) it is essential for early readers to learn the grapheme-phoneme relationship first, and build upon this foundation. The next step is working with short vowels! Forming and reading CVC words is thrilling for a new reader, and discovering 'word families' is even more so. Rhyming is next in this progression, which leads to even more fun with words!

"We need to use our mind and eyes, every time we read.
But there are times (like when you rhyme) when your EARs are what you need!"
Mini- lessons explain how each short vowel can belong to multiple 'word families'. Students work on dozens of activities that remind them to consider the sound behind every single letter. They learn and practice that the combination of a short vowel with a final consonant makes a word's "ending sound", and that this is key in identifying both word families and rhyming pairs.
"Help me find my rhyming friend
It has my same sound at the end"
Here are some of the great activities included in this packet:
*Word Family Bar Graphs- every short vowel included.
* Finding real vs. nonsense CVC words with short-vowel animal characters
*Tracing and writing practice with short vowel words.
*5 Word Search pages for each word family.
*Reading short sentences with CVC and basic sight words
* Using these sentences as clues- coloring the mystery picture that fits the sentence description
"I can be a pet", and "I can run" etc.
*Identifying a picture-word, listening for the ending sound, matching the pictures that rhyme with it.
*Page after page of word family fun:
-For example, each page in the "Short a Apple Tree" section shows a different word family on an apple tree. Below are apples displaying various short a CVC words. Students then read, match, and color the apples that belong with the tree on that page. This same read/match/color procedure follows all of the short vowel word families:
-Matching eggs to the short e nests
-Matching fish to the short i fishbowls
-Matching popcorn to the short o popcorn bag
-Matching frosting to the short u cupcakes.

"Reading and rhyming with our ears?
Yes, that's what you heard!
To rhyme you need to LISTEN
to the SOUND that ends the word"
