Increase students’ knowledge and application of their short vowel sounds with this Crazy Short Vowels game! Whether you are working to develop decoding skills or using these words to enhance vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, or writing instruction – this easy-to-play game ensures students get the review they need with the level of fun they enjoy! Play with students or have them play with their peers to keep them occupied while you work with other students or groups.

How to Play:

The game can be played with 2-4 players. To start, shuffle the deck and deal 7 cards to each player. Place the remaining cards in the middle and turn over the top card. Player 1 will look at the word on the card and choose a card from their hand that has the same vowel sound, beginning sound, or ending sound. They will lay it down on top of the pile and read the word. The next player then goes. If a player cannot play, they must draw a card. The game continues until a player plays all their cards.

Other Ways to Use These Cards:

In addition to decoding the words as a part of the game, you can…

  • Set a timer & have students read as many words in one minute as possible so that you can measure their word-level reading fluency
  • Have students pull a word to define so that you can target vocabulary skills
  • Have students pull words to use in sentences so that you can target vocabulary and writing skills

Grade Level Target:

Intended for students in grades K-2

What’s Included:

  • 82 cards, shrink-wrapped and shipped as a stack so that you can choose your preferred storage or binding method for the cards
  • Each 2.5” x 3.5” card is printed on heavy-duty cardstock to allow for long-term and repeated use
