Short Vowel Sleuths

We’ve been working very hard on mastering those tricky short vowels!

While hanging around Pinterest, I stumbled on this adorable video from Scratch Garden! You must head over to their YouTube page – they have a whole set of great videos to reinforce important ideas!

To mix up our short vowel practice, we were Super Vowel Sleuths this week! My awesome team partner Lisa shared this idea and I whipped up this FREEBIE to share with you!

Together, we generated a list of short e words. Then, the students selected one of those words {or any other short e word they wanted to use}

They wrote 3 clues about this short vowel word. Inside, they drew a picture of their mystery word.

It was a nice change to our normal vowel practice and I was able to slip in some writing, too! The kids had a blast walking around the classroom sharing their clues and making guesses at the mystery words!

To liven up our classroom even more for Halloween, we watercolored Witch’s Feet. Of course Art Projects for Kids has the cutest {and easiest directions} for kid art.

To kick it up a notch, we created our own witch brew recipes.
