Run Run Fast as you can----Color the short vowel gingerbread man

So my little dude was home with a fever today.  I thought...well, he can just snuggle up beside mommy on the couch, turn on the TV, and I can do some pinning, make some freebies for the blog, work on something for TPT--I will get a lot done and still have me little guy right beside me...RIGHT??? WRONG!!  Here I was wanting to keep him still---comfortable---and he wanted to jump around and play video games.  So needless to say--though we didn't jump around---I didn't get as much accomplished like I had hoped.  Good news is--he's feeling better.  As soon as I told him his fever broke he said, "Okay-can I go to school now?"  Gotta love him! :)

Now, I did however make this. It's just a short vowel review worksheet.  Hope you enjoy.  You can click the pic to download it. 

If you download and you haven't clicked the blue join this site button on the left--I'd love for you to follow AND leave some comments ;)  They really do perk this ole' tired momma up ;)


  1. Do you have an ideas/worksheets/activities for compound words? It's one of our phonics skills next week and I'd love to hear any ideas you have!

  2. I haven't created any worksheets for compound words yet....but I can tell you that we say this little chant.

    You take a word (pretend to grab a word from the air and put it into your fist), you take a word (do the same action with your other hand), you pound it together (bring fists and pound on top of each other) then you have a new word all together. Then we do a few examples..ie.. "butter" and "fly" the kids repeat the word with the action and grab "butter' and "fly' out of the air--and pound together butterfly.

    Hope that helps.

  3. Ohh--and we've created word books too. Using a flap book, draw a picture and write the two words that make up the compound word. Then under the flaps, have them draw a picture and write the Compound word. Does that make sense?

  4. Thanks so much and I follow your blog too. Great ideas!

  5. Love this! Thank you. I am following and would love for you to follow me too!

  6. Thanks I will definitely use these ideas! Thanks so much!

  7. You're so welcome everyone!! Glad you can use them too :)
