Poems coming home from school are a great resource for families. Learn the poem together and play around with altering it. Feed in facts - "I have a little reptile..", and your child's own knowledge - "I have a great big dog..."
Word Sort - This online interactive word sort allows the child/teacher to select which specific short vowel sound to work on and then provides a drag and drop chart that separates them into word families. The charts can also be printed once completed.
