This package by Ruth Rumack contains 5 activities to practice discriminating between long vowel sounds made by different vowel teams, and 3 culminating activities to practice decoding and spelling these types of words.
The activities include the following:
-Vowel Teams Classroom Poster and Anchor Chart: Students fill in their own images of Vowel Team Words
-Find the Loud Vowel Mazes: Students circle "loud vowel" of words as they work through mazes
-Build a Word Family Tree: Students practice constructing words within the same word family
-Vowel Teamwork Tale: Students fill in words containing vowel teams in the context of stories
-Write Your Own Teamwork Tale: Students write stories with vowel team words provided in a word bank
Vowel Team Four-in-a-Row: Students try to find images of words with different vowel teams
Make a Word Board Game: Students build words with given vowel teams
I have . . .Who has?: Students read words containing different vowel teams by identifying manipulations to the word
This pack also includes suggestions for supplementary large group, small group, and at-home games. At-home games are kinesthetic and promote phonological awareness and reinforcement of spelling rules.
