For a sample of this, visit my store to grab a freebie for short a. This packet includes 12 real and 12 nonsense CVC words for each vowel for a total of 60 real and 60 nonsense words. That's 120 total CVC cards. There is a record sheet for sorting real and nonsense words on a t-chart for each vowel. There are also 2 word family houses to record words. There are many different ways to use this packet:
1. Sort real and nonsense words for each short vowel.
2. Play memory match game to match word families for all cards or just one vowel.
3. Only use real words for word family activity or only use nonsense words for CVC blending fluency.
4. Formative assessment for CVC word families or real/nonsense word reading.
These cards are also self-checking with matching pictures on the same word family. They are great for a literacy center, small reading/phonics groups, or assessment. Please leave a comment and let me know other ways you have used these.
