Word Chains are a great way for students to listen for consonant and vowel sounds. All short vowel and some long vowel activities are enclosed in this packet - a total of 13 activities – along with the directions. The goal is for the students to write a word on their slate and erase/change/or add one letter to make the next word on the list. The activities include all short vowel sounds and both sounds of a, i, and o using the CVCe pattern. I try to incorporate one of these during my week to emphasize the phonetic vowel sound we’re working on in class.
