We were reviewing long and short vowel sounds this week and my kids just weren't getting it, so I decided to give them cards with our spelling words and have them sort themselves into groups of either long vowels or short vowels on opposite sides of the room. Even after they grouped, they still were not putting the words in the correct category. On the spur of the moment, I told the short vowel side of the room to call one of the players from the other side that didn't belong over to their side, just like when they played Red Rover at recess. They loved it! We also played it to review common and proper nouns. Click on the pic below to download the directions and the words we used. (They are from Scott Foresman's Unit 2 "Penguin Chick.")
