62 Printed Word Cards
62 Picture Cards (match the words)
7 Game Ideas for the Cards:
Match the Word to the Picture
Sort the Cards into Short Vowel Categories
Memory Concentration - all turned over face down, flip to find a match
Go Fishing for Short Vowels - ask other players for a certain word or picture
Old Maid - randomly select a card from someone's hand to see if it works for you
Whole Group Matching Game
Give 1 card to every child in the room. Everyone has to walk around and find the person in the room that is holding their match.
Whole Group Category Sort
Give 1 card to every child in the room. Everyone walks around and starts to make 5 big groups. Students have to sort themselves into 5 short vowel categories.
I hope your students enjoy the game ideas for short vowels! Look for more fun ideas in the other Fun On the Way Units.
