Practice medial vowel substitution and beginning blends in a fresh, fun way! VOWEL IN THE MIDDLE offers options galore—print out the 6 full-size game boards and vowel cards in color or black & white. Use them to provide individual students with practice manipulating CCVC words, or as a small group center. The half-page worksheets can be used for a whole class activity, or as recording sheets for the full-size activities.
For individual play:
Give the student a game board and an assortment of vowel cards. Challenge the student to use the vowel cards to complete the words on the board (matching recording sheet is included).
Give the student a game board and one each of the vowels. Instruct him/her to make as many words as possible and write them down.
For a small group activity:
Give each participant a game board. Spread out the vowel cards, face down. Students take turns selecting a vowel card and trying to use it to complete a word on their card. A “take 2” card gives the player an extra turn. The first player to complete all their words is the winner. A corresponding recording sheet can be used.
For a whole class activity:
Give each student a half page board. Although more than one student will be using each version of the board, the choices students make will create a unique board for each player. Each student tries to complete their words using vowels chosen for the group.
Other Vowel in the MIddle activities are available: CVC, CVCC, CVVC, CCVCC. Get them all at a low price in the Vowel in the Middle Bundle.
