Long U

Long U

Strengthen your child's knowledge of long and short vowels by creating a long/short vowel scavenger hunt. Write words with long/short vowels on notecards (e.g. cat, gate, hug, dune, boat, shot) and challenge your child to collect them and sort them into two piles: short vowel words/long vowel words.
Make sure to use a variety of assessment tools to evaluate student word knowledge. You can use student writing as a meaningful assessment by doing quick diction activities that focus on the spelling pattern of the week.
