Sometimes it clicks, and sometimes it doesn’t.. a few of my little cuties are struggling hard with remembering the vowel rules for short vowels and long VCe vowels. We have gone over each individually, but when they are all mixed together they just can’t seem to hang onto what they’ve learned.
To help them out, I made a little “cumulative review” activity packet.
To begin, we review how to make each sound using these cards that describe the movement of the mouth, placement of the tongue, etc.
We have been doing a lot of vowel sorts by sight (they see the word/read it aloud) or by sound (they hear me say the word).
We have also been incorporating some games into the mix so we can practice reading lots of different words, while still recognizing which rule they follow.
My kids really struggle with the long /u/ sounds because there are two and they are a little tricky to blend. Sometimes I’ll just pull out all the short and long /u/ words and we’ll just focus on them for a session.
Here are the contents of the packet:
