Short Vowel Review & Super Weekend Savings

This past week we have been busy in first grade reviewing the short vowel sounds.  We took a week off from our Houghton Mifflin reading series to do a few fun activities.

We made this little short vowel flip book . . . which is always one of favorite activities!!!clip_image008

This is something you could easily recreate using any worksheet you already have that has short vowel pictures.  To make the flipbook all you need to do is fold a piece of construction paper in half and cut 5 slits.  We usually already have this done for our kids before we begin. 

We also used our reading book to be short vowel detectives.  Student had to find 10 short vowel words from all of the stories we’ve read and record them and their page number.  This is just a little way to keep them accountable and make sure they are not making up words  . . . not that any of them would ever try doing that!!!!

This week we also began learning more about nouns, verbs and adjectives.  We used several of the activities from our sentence structure unit . . .


AND we did a yummy little activity about adjectives that was inspired by Babbling Abby.


Every item in our TpT store is on sale through the end of the weekend.clip_image004
