This packet is a seasonal companion to my "Word Work Pack: CVC Words, Sight Words, Sentences, Blends & Digraphs." This packet contains a few word families that are related to seasonal words. The majority of the packet focuses on short vowel sounds.
It contains the following pages:
Word Families--These activity sheets start with a winter-themed word, such as "snowman." Then, they ask students to make words from the related word family. In this case, it would be the "-an" family. 14 word families are included.
Write-in a vowel choice-- These sheets provide students with all 5 vowels. They must choose the one that makes a real word. Both black-and-white and color versions are included. The color version can be laminated for classroom use.
Cut-and-glue the vowels-- These sheets provide students with 2 vowel choices and 6 words to complete on each page.
Slide-a-vowel pages --These cutting activities allow students to slide different vowels through slits in the picture, creating a new word each time. These are also provided in black-and-white and color.
Write the Room-- There are also winter-themed "write the room" sheets that go with this packet. They are available for free on my blog:
This product addresses the following Common Core Standards for Kindergarten:
RF.K.2. Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds (phonemes). Recognize and produce rhyming words. Blend and segment onsets and rimes of single-syllable spoken words. Isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in three-phoneme (consonant-vowel-consonant, or CVC) words.1 (This does not include CVCs ending with /l/, /r/, or /x/.) Add or substitute individual sounds (phonemes) in simple, one-syllable words to make new words.
RF.K.3. Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words. Demonstrate basic knowledge of letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary or most frequent sound for each consonant. Associate the long and short sounds with the common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels. Distinguish between similarly spelled words by identifying the sounds of the letters that differ.
