This Build a Word set is also part of a money-saving BUNDLE!! Make sure you check it out for easy differentiation!
The hardest part of spelling in the English language is that we have so many variations of how to make each sound.
This resource is designed to show students the common alternate spellings for each sound. Use in conjunction with our Phonics Alternative Spelling Posters
These activity cards include common short vowel spelling patterns for each short vowel sound. Students need to use their phonetic knowledge to sound out the word and then use their visual clues to choose the spelling pattern that is correct and check “Does it look right?” This step is imperative in spelling development.
Alternative spelling patterns included are
- short e – e, ea
- short i – i, ui, y
- short o – o, a
- short u – u, o, oo, ou
Also included as a BONUS resource is a short vowel match up set. This set includes short a and is not colour coded. It is perfect for students who are identifying the short vowel sound in the word. This is a separate resource that focuses on a different skill set so you are getting 2 resources in 1!!
More resources are being added regularly and I love showing how we’re using them, so make sure you are following my FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM so you can see!!
