I created this set of pages to help my Five get practice spelling and writing short vowel words.
You’ll love how simple this is!
1. Give your child a printable, pencil, and die.
2. Have him roll the die. He will write a word with an ending corresponding to the number on the die. On the above printable, rolling a two would mean writing a word that ends with “ack.”
3. Show your child how to use the letters, blends, and digraphs to create new words.
4. Set a timer or a set number of words to write so your child knows when to finish. Filling in every line would be a bit much!
My Five enjoyed this; it was a great activity to keep him busy and learning while I worked with a sibling. In the classroom, you could use it as a center or as quiet work when you finish a spelling lesson. If you wanted this to be a partner activity, you could have children take turns rolling the die and writing words. They could write in colored pencils if you wanted to see who had written which word.
