Resource Short Vowel Sound Game: Word Paths
Short Vowel Sound Game: Word Paths
  • Created By melissa
  • Description:
    In this game students are given nine letters in a 3x3 grid. Students need to find paths within the grid to spell real words. Students type in the words and have to find all 10. The directions are read aloud to the student.
  • Purpose:
    This is a great task to build typing skills and for students to develop a deeper understanding of how to build small words. I would recommend playing this game after some instruction with short vowel sounds.
    After completing the game ask your student:
    -What did you notice about the words?
    -Can you create a nonsense word that follows the same pattern?
    -What other words have that same short vowel sound in them?
