Very Busy Vowels

Happy Saturday, friends!  We have been working like busy, busy bumble bees this week to master medial vowels and CVC words.

To review vowels, we observed the shape of our mouths when we said short vowel sounds.

 We also sang Vowel Sound Hound Dogs to review those sounds.  I love Jack Hartman's music and Kim Adsit has an awesome book to accompany the song at here TPT store.

We made words with Deanna Jump's Stretchy the Word Snake and practiced stretching sounds with slinkies.

We also played What's that Vowel? from my Very Busy Vowels unit.  To play, students take turns rolling a picture dice and naming the medial vowel sound.  Then they move their pawn on a game board to that vowel.

We also enjoyed medial vowel scoot from my little unit.

 You can grab these goodies from my unit by clicking the picture below.

 I will give it away for free to the first 5 people to leave a comment with an email address.

Enjoy your weekend!

  8. Those activities look fantastic. We are also focusing on middle sounds and CVC words right now. Some of my little ones are really catching on but there are quite a few who just can't put it together yet. I'm thinking I need to grab your pack so I can get those kids moving along.

    Thanks for sharing!
