Learning how to recognize and spell words will help your child become a better reader. You can help your child practice reading and spelling short-vowel words. Below are some activities to help make learning fun! •Making Words : Write the following letter combinations on index cards: an, ap, at, ed, en, et, ib, ip, og, op, ug, un. Then, give your child five consonant letter cards—for example, b, c, r, d, l. Ask your child to choose a consonant card and add it to a combination card to make a word. •Sort the Cards : Write short-vowel words on note cards. Ask your child to sort the cards according to the vowel sounds. •Unscramble the Word : Give your child three letters, and ask him or her to unscramble the letters to make a word. Explain that sometimes you can make more than one word with the same three letters. For example, with the letters a, p, and n, your child can make the words pan and nap. •Rhyming Pictures : Make a list of rhyming words that end with an, ap, at, ed, en, et, ib, ip, og, op, ug, un. Ask your child to look in magazines and cut out a picture for a rhyming word. Encourage your child to find at least two rhyming words for each ending vowel-consonant combination. •Beat the Clock : Set a timer and see how many words your child can write down in one minute. Have your child write down as many words as he or she can spell with the following endings: ack, ath, est, ock, ump, and, ing, ick, ock, ish, ent. •Spell the Correct Word : Write a word for your child on a piece of paper that includes letters similar to the ending letters mentioned in Beat the Clock. Then, say a new word and ask your child to change a letter to make the new word. For example, write the word pick and ask your child to make it pack.
