I was very excited (and overwhelmed) by this challenge. I did not have any products that needed to be finished, which left me having to start from scratch. I have had somewhat of a TpT writer's block lately. After thinking long and hard I decided to create something that I could use next year as the Reading Teacher for K-2. I know that short vowels are something that all of the grade levels will be working with - whether as a review or as a new skill. So I created a few worksheets for each short vowel and came up with this:
Yay! I feel like I may have taken the first step to overcoming this TpT writer's block issue that I have been dealing with. I am so glad that this was one of the challenges because it forced me to create something that I will be able to use next year (because what is the point of putting all of that time and effort into a product if you can't use it in your own classroom!). Now I am in the right mindset to continue creating materials and hopefully have a head start on what I will need for next year :)
So enough of my blabbering...here is a preview of the different pages within the set.
The activities are all the same for the five different short vowels.
- One of the pages asks that students to sort pictures by different word families. I love to try and incorporate cutting and pasting into as many of the worksheets as I can because these are skills that my students always seem to struggle with.
- Another page has the students use the code to color each picture based on the word family it belongs in. (There are two versions of this page - one of the options asks the students to then write the word underneath the picture while the other does not). *Only one of the options is shown in the preview
- On another page the students are asked to read the words and paste the matching picture in the box (There are also two versions of this page - on the first option the pictures are glued on top of the word and on the second option the pictures are glued above the word).
- The final page asks the students to sort pictures by the medial sound (does it have the short vowel sound or not?).
