Teach your students to read words containing long vowel sounds with this fun hands-on packet! Children should say the sounds as they drive their toy car past the birds and then blend them together to read the word. Perfect for improving phonic skills.
Road mats with the following words are provided (one word per mat):
ow: cow, now, down, owl, town
oi: coin, boil, soil, join, oil
ear: hear, gear, near, tear, dear
air: hair, fair, chair, pair, stair
er: fern, her, herb, term, herd
Each word is also written on a car flashcard (color copy and B&W copy). These could be used for assessment purposes or children could match them to the correct road mats.
