Short Vowel Worksheets can get boring, here’s some fun low-prep word work activities that will keep your students engaged as they learn to read and recognize short vowel words. You’ll love them too because they are super easy to prep.
All you need to do is print! You can slide the pages in a page protector. Or you can laminate and cut the pages apart. Optional front covers are included if you’d like to store these mats on a metal ring.
There are 40 Word Search mats included in this resource. Included are two types of search mats included: same vowel sounds and mixed vowel practice.
The words students are searching for are listed on the mat, along with picture cues. This makes the mats great for beginning readers.
Students will read the words on the word list and find each of the words on the word search. They will use manipulatives or a dry erase marker to cover/circle the words as they find them.
This activity makes a great literacy morning tub or early finisher activity. It also well as a literacy center.
Short vowel words appear up and down or left to right on the word searches.
