Vowel Tiles

This little ditty is something I have had in the works for quite some time.

And it is silly that it took so long as this is just a short and sweet little number. A quick little c-v-c game that helps reinforce those short vowel sounds.

Yep, there it is. CVC Vowel Tiles....

So what is this you ask?

Well, the little ones have their own set of vowel tiles which includes one of each vowel. And then they rotate through six different cards to practice their short vowel sound knowledge. There are two different recording sheets to choose from.

For some this is a teacher directed sound blending lesson. For others it is independent review... like this little guy below:

This next friend is using the same recording sheet, but is writing out the entire word:

For some of my early finishers I have them write a sentence using as many of the c-v-c words from one of the cards! Here is a sample that is included in the packet itself.

This picture isn't the best..and his final sentence probably wasn't spelled quite the same... but you get the idea.

As for the tiles... there are some included in the set that you can photocopy. Otherwise there is a list of how to get/make your own.

I use some of the letter tiles I have from Lakeshore Learning, but you see those green little circle ones up there.... well, those are just random counters that were sitting in my cupboard and may as well leave their math life for some language arts action.

The kids enjoy manipulating the tiles and I love fitting as much vowel practice in as I can!

If you need some vowel practice....this pack of fun is just $1.50 for the next few days.
