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.
In the download, you’ll find nine pages:
- at, an, ag, ad, ap, ab
- it, ig, in, ill, ip, ick
- ot, ob, og, op, ock
- et, en, ell, ed
- ug, um, un, ut
- an, un, en, in
- at, it, ot, ut
- ag, ig, ill, ell
Thank for you creating this! It is perfect for my special needs kiddo while we are homeschooling!

Do you think my second grader would learn his spelling words if I do this and he not throwing a temper tantrum???
I think if you choose words that are at his level so that it’s not too hard for him and teach the words with games, there’s a good chance of that. 🙂
thnx a lot for the wonderful creative engaging game.
I LOVE all of your resources, lessons, and tips!! Writing is a challenging subject to teach, but I always feel more confident when I use your resources and lessons. Everything is of high quality, doable, and relevant. I always look to you before I go to other teacher experts, TpT, etc., for guidance.
This is so wonderful to hear, Alvone! Thank you!!
I love all of your products! These are great for word work. I teach 2nd grade bilingual and some of my students are very low so being able to make words and read them is just perfect for independent work. Do you have more of these besides the short and long vowels?
No, not right now, Astrid!

Hi Anna, Thanks so much for sharing these fantastic resources.
You’re welcome, Rowena – thanks so much for reading!
Thank you for your generous sharing. I am new to kindergarten this year. Your resources have been a really big help to me. Thank you so much.
So glad I can help you out in your transition to a new grade level, Lavern!
This is awesome! Thank you so much for sharing!
You’re very welcome, Joanne!
Love your page! I would like to alter this so that the writing space is larger for use in a center (laminated) with Vis a Vis transparency pens. Basically, I would white out every other line, starting with the first. May I have permission to make that change? Please let me know, thanks!
Love this game. I love using games to provide drill and this one is a winner.
Thank you for your kind words, Mary!
I just love your creative and easy exercises to make learning interesting and for kids. I’m a first grade tutor for reluctant learners and they love “your stuff.” Thanks so much.
I’m so glad to hear that, Shirley – thanks so much for the encouraging comment!
This Roll & Write is just what I needed for word family practice & spelling. Thank you for creating it!
You’re very welcome, Angela!
I can’t get this yo print… Im Using my phone – that may have something to do with it??
I don’t know for sure, Amber, but that would be my guess. Hopefully you can get to a lap or desktop and try again!
Thank you for sharing., this is a wonderful review for phonics and spelling! I know my students will enjoy these.
You’re very welcome, Linda!
