Short Vowel Practice {short a}

We've been working hard on reading and writing our CVC words, focusing on short a words. My kiddos are so excited to be reading! This week we've been using some fun activities from my Short Vowel unit.

First, we practiced reading, writing and drawing short a words.
I laminated the pages so that we could use dry-erase markers {anything other than a pencil is always fun} and so that we could use the pages over and over. This was also a great vocabulary builder for my English learners.



Then we played Roll, Read and Cover!
I made some dice using foam blocks from the Dollar Tree and writing a-f on one cube, and 1-6 on another cube. The kiddos rolled the dice to find which word to read and then covered it. They loved this little game!




Next, we're going to play this fun little game!


You can find all of the activities above in this unit:

How do you practice short vowels in your classroom?
