Great for word work and word study! This is helpful for students struggling with onset and rime, blending, identifying short vowel sounds, and nonsense word fluency. This set includes 20 Word Family Wheels highlighting common short vowel word families- 4 CVC word families for each short vowel.
These word family wheels can be laminated, cut, and assembled with a brass fastener. Students rotate to change the beginning sounds and make new words. These wheels make a great center activity or quick word work activity during groups. For an extra challenge, the students can record which words are real and which are alien (nonsense). I've included two versions of a recording sheet for this in the set as well (real words/alien words and real words/nonsense words) Digraphs and blends are included. This set contains word wheels for:
short a: -at, -an, -ap, -am
short e: -ed, -en, -eg, -et
short i: -ip, -in, -it, -ig
short o: -op, -ot, -og, -ock
short u: -ug, -un, -ut, -ub
