Short Vowel Practice Games
I just posted my series of Short Vowel Practice Games on TpT. They are SO cute and inviting for children and easy and fun to play! Most importantly, they meet the following Common Core Standards:
• Isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in three-phoneme (consonant-vowel-consonant, or CVC) words.
Phonics and Word Recognition:
• Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words.
• Demonstrate basic knowledge of letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary or most frequent sound for each consonant.
• Associate the long and short sounds with the common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels.
• Distinguish between similarly spelled words by identifying the sounds of the letters that differ.
First Grade –
• Isolate and pronounce initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in spoken single-syllable words.
Phonics & Word Recognition:
• Decode regularly spelled one-syllable words.
• Use knowledge that every syllable must have a vowel sound to determine the number of syllables in a printed word.
I've been meaning to share these games for a while. However, like most things these days (including this blog) they got pushed to the back burner. You see, I've been focusing most of my attention on job searching and soaking up all the time I can get with my son - knowing that my days spent home with him are very limited. Now back to resume editing and fort building...
