"Language Arts"--MEGA Bundle Packet of Reading Syllable Vowel Type Words with Word Lists and Games/Activities

Amanda Trump

The mega bundle packet includes 400+ words lists and 60+ games and activities!!!  

There are 6 syllable types in reading. The basic overall purpose of learning syllable type reading is to give students 6 reading strategies to aid them in chunking longer words into short, readable parts. Learning to read by identifying the type of syllable is the most consistent method to teach reading to your students, and the easiest way for your students to learn to read. All of the words lists incorporate patterns using all the vowels. The closed syllable and V-C-e syllable target words using common phonograms.  

This packet of activities and games give students a fun way to learn the syllable types. The activities/games can be placed in language stations, or they can be played during small groups. So enjoy as your students learn another way to break the code to reading!

Vowels: Long Versus Short Summer Version


I finally uploaded a new product I've been working on for awhile.  Actually, it's not new.  It's just the current season's version of one of my best sellers.  It's a summer version of my long vs. short vowel word sorts and flap books.

Discriminating between long and short vowels is such a critical skill for first and second graders.  These word sorts and flap books give them valuable practice doing just that!  Take a peek…

Here's an example of what the words pages look like.  There are 2 short vowel families and 2 long vowel families per sort.

If your kiddos need to start with less words, try my word sorts bundle where there are sorts with 2 vowel patterns and 4 vowel patterns.

Now they need somewhere to sort and glue their words…
Here's an example of what a sort and glue sheet looks like.  Each vowel family is listed to help them.  For late year second graders you could white-out the labels and have them label the columns.  Tricky, eh?

This bundle also has flap books for the vowel patterns.  Some are for discriminating between long and short sounds…

Others are for discriminating between certain vowel patterns.

The words for flap books come 2 sets to a page, so less copying for you!

You can grab this bundle in my TpT store for $8 by clicking here.  Don't forget to leave me some feedback!

Thank you!
