Short Vowels Bundle (Common Core ELA)

Bzzzz, Bzzzz. The bees want to help you create short vowel ‘u’ words. Find the bee letters that can create words on your flower’s pedals! Fill your flower first to win.

Common Core Skill:

Your students will learn to add or substitute phonemes in one syllable words to make new words.

Game Play:

Pick a bee letter. Match the bee letter to your flower. Write the letter on the flower. Fill your entire flower first to win.

Differentiated Instruction:

One set of flowers has beginning letters to help students who are new to this concept. Another set of flowers doesn’t have beginning letters. Students are challenged to make words on their own. There are also empty bees and flowers for you to create your own words. Use word families that are more advanced or add more beginning letters. You can even make nonsense word flowers!
