This is a set of word wheels, by Sara Ipatenco, that allow students to practice reading words with various letter blends and short vowel sounds. Cut the wheels out, punch a hole in the middle, and fasten with a brad. I laminate them, as well, because they hold up a lot longer! I also print them on colored paper to make them more fun! Use these wheels during guided reading stations or as morning work or extra reading practice. I ask my students to write sentences using the words in the wheels, too! There are a total of 82 word wheels – 52 letter blend wheels and 30 short vowel wheels. The letter blends included are: bl, br, ch, cl, cr, dr, fl, fr, gl, gr, pl, pr, sc, sh, sk, sl, sm, sn, sp, st, sw, th, tr, tw, wh, and wr. Enjoy!
These sets are available separately in my store, but buying them together saves over 20%!
