The Middle Sound? picture cards, vowel strip and recording sheet

Help students practise hearing the short vowel sound in CVC words.

This resource comes with 59 cvc picture cards. It includes a vowel strip to put pegs/counters on and a recording sheet/graph to record the middle sound of the words.

Laminate the vowel strip and get students to pull a card out or show them a card. They need to listen to the short vowel sound and place either a counter or put a peg onto that sound. Students can then record the sound on their graphing sheet by colouring in a square for that sound or using a bingo dabber.

Give all students a vowel strip during mat sessions and complete as a whole group or use in small group activities during your literacy session/rotations.

Afterwards is a good opportunity to talk about which sound did we hear the most/least? etc
