In this document you will find short vowel words (short a) turned into a card game that will help students practice reading words with short a patterns. This game is played like other traditional card games in which students take turns selecting cards and identifying the word on those cards. Included in the card set are "Pit Stop!" cards and if one of these cards is selected, the student loses all their cards. The player with the most cards at the end of the game wins! This is a great way for students to practice reading short vowel words in a fun and engaging way!
