Practice long and short vowel sounds with this engaging sorting game for whiteboards and computers. With 264 words to sort, this game will always be fresh and fun. Choose the exact words that you would like to use in the game or simply choose two or three vowel sounds categories. Ten themes are included to make the game even more fun! The themes are: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Winter, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Superhero, Pirate, Western and plain Monster.
FANTASTIC FEATURE #1 – Endless Combinations
Choose any combination of vowel sounds to sort!
FANTASTIC FEATURE #2 – Increase Difficulty
Choose up to three sounds to sort at once! This feature makes it easy to increase the difficulty of the game as your students progress throughout the year. Choose three sounds to make the game more challenging.
FANTASTIC FEATURE #3 – Editable Word Lists
You can edit the word lists to choose the exact words that you want to practice. Simply uncheck a word to remove it from the list. The words will randomize so that the game is always different and fun.
FANTASTIC FEATURE #4 – Self Correcting
Students will know right away if they have sorted the picture correctly. If correct, the picture will snap in place. If incorrect, the picture will return to the bottom of the screen.
FANTASTIC FEATURE #5 – Ten Fun Themes
I have included ten different themes to choose from so that you can surprise your students with fun monster characters that dress up for the holidays. The themes are: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Winter, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Superhero, Pirate, Western and plain Monster. Your students will love the silly monster characters and the fun scrapbook theme!
