SUPER {Long Vowel} Giveaway

When we return from Christmas break our kiddos will finally launch into decoding and reading words with long vowels.  We are so excited to introduce this new skill with the adorable Super E unit that one of our favorite bloggers {The Teacher Wife} created starring a super hero that teaches kiddos how to change short vowel words into long vowel words by adding a silent letter.  If you haven’t seen this unit you have to go check it out . . . it’s a must have!!!  To supplement our reading curriculum we will also be using a series of activities we created called Long Vowel FUN as we introduce a new long vowel sound each week.  image

Long Vowel FUN includes a variety of activities that reinforce all of the long vowel sounds.  Each week students can practice working with long vowel words that go with the target vowel pattern you are teaching.  We use these activities each week during guided reading, during our tiered reading intervention time and as independent practice.  Our kids absolutely LOVE the decodable word games.  Once we have introduced a new skill and played the game throughout the week we leave them out for the students to play when they have spare time with a partner or small group.  Believe it or not . . . they actually fight over which game they are going to play!!!

Activities include:

(8) cut/paste real and nonsense word sorts
(8) rhyming word production worksheets
(8) cut/paste sentence scrambles with missing punctuation and capitalization
(8) decodable word games that can be played in small groups

Here’s a {sneak} peek at a sample of each activity included in the unit.

Now for the exciting news . . . we are teaming up with The Teacher Wife for a SUPER {long vowel} giveaway. Simply post a comment with your email address and tell us who your favorite SUPER hero is. 

We will choose (3) winners who will each receive a set of both long vowel units.

Good luck everyone . . . this giveaway ends Wednesday night at 8:00 pm (CST).

  3. Both packs look amazing! My favourite super-hero … (so hard to pick, I'm a bit of a super-hero fan!) I'm going to go with Barbara Gordon/Batgirl because she's tough, compassionate, has been through a LOT and come out stronger for it. She makes a great role-model.

  23. I grew up watching Wonder Woman. I always loved how she saved the day just in the nick of time and how she stood up for women and their rights without being man - like. She was always a big role model for me.

  59. As far as fame, unsecured minimal effort credits are significantly more well known than secured ones. Be that as it may, both alternatives are entirely useful. Whether you wind up amidst an issue or on the off chance that you have to manage surprising issues, this will permit you to feel gently. cash advance
