Low-Prep Short Vowel Games – Print & Play

Welcome back to our Print and Play Series, where we are creating and sharing low-prep games that you can play with your kids for summer review, school prep, or any time! The literacy games we’ve shared so far are for beginning sounds and ending sounds. Today, we’re sharing three different levels of short vowel games that you can just print and play!

Check out our Print & Play Short Vowel Games pack. It has SO many more games with updated directions and clip art!

The kinds of activities found in this pack are similar to the activities you can find in Level 3 of our Alphabet Sounds App. If your child is ready for more short vowel fun, our Short Vowel Word Study App is a great place to start! Both apps can be found on Google Play and iTunes.

Three Levels of Short Vowel Games

We’re calling the games in this series “low-prep”, but we’re talking VERY low-prep…only 3-5 minutes to find the materials you need and you’re off to play {and learn}. This pack includes THREE levels of short vowel play! Here are a few pictures of each level:

short vowel game - level 1 with short o

LEVEL 1 is what my daughter {age 5} used. Only one particular vowel is featured on these game boards. Kids are asked to distinguish between short o and not short o, for example. {The empty circles are for the images that feature a different short vowel other than o.} We always go through and identify each picture before she begins the game. A picture key is included on the 2nd page of the download.


short a and not short a game board

Here she is playing the short a game board. She landed on lip, which does not have the short a sound, so she’s moving the Power Magnet on the side for vowel sounds that are not short a.


Short Vowel Games - Level 2 - comparing two vowel sounds

LEVEL 2 is a little more difficult, as kids are asked to distinguish between and identify two vowel sounds, not just one. We did not play this one, but it’s played the same way as level 1 and can be for 1 or 2 players.


LEVEL 3 is even more difficult, as kids are not only asked to distinguish and identify two vowel sounds, but SPELL the words, too. This works great for kids who are ready for an extra challenge!

Just slip your page into a plastic sleeve protector and use a dry erase marker. A plastic sleeve protector works best if you’d like to re-use the page. If you don’t care to re-use the page, then just write directly on the paper.

If you play with two players, each player uses a different color dry erase marker on his side of the board. Since it is likely that kids will toss the counter onto the same word more than once, the rule is you can only spell the same word twice within one game. After that, you have to either re-toss it or you lose a turn. Of course, you are free to adapt that rule in your own way, too!

5 Fun Short Vowel Activities That Only Take 5 Minutes

Do your students confuse their short vowel sounds? Maybe they substitute e for a? Or i for e? Or just need more practice in general?!

The short vowel sounds can be so tricky, especially for students who have certain accents. In the southern United States, where I live, sometimes the e and i sound exactly the same!!

Accent or no accent, I find that my students need lots of practice differentiating between the short vowel sounds. They need practice when they’re first learning the sounds, of course, but ALSO later on. Once they learn long vowel sounds, things can get confusing, and we need to come back and review the short vowel sounds too!

In this post, I’ll share 5 short vowel activities that are fun, low prep, and only take a few minutes to implement. Plus I’ve got 4freebies for you! 🙂 Make sure to read all the way through the post so you don’t miss any of these freebies.

These short vowel activities are fun, low-prep and only take a few minutes. I use these with my Kindergarten, first grade, and even second grade students. Read the post for all the details and to download the free short vowel activities!

Activity #1: Short Vowel Craft Stick “Puppets”

In this activity, you say a word with a short vowel sound aloud. Students have to listen, repeat the word, identify the correct short vowel, and hold up the corresponding puppet.

This short vowel activity is simple and fun! Just say a word with a short vowel sound aloud. Students have to listen, repeat the word, identify the correct short vowel, and hold up the corresponding puppet. In addition to holding up the puppet, students should identify the vowel. ("A says /a/.") Read the entire blog post for more short vowel activities for Kindergarten, first grade, and second grade - and to download all the free materials!

In addition to holding up the puppet, students should identify the vowel. You can have them say the sound. Or, even better, have them say the letter name and sound: “A says /a/.”

Here’s an example:

You say the word “fish.”

Students say: “Fish.” Students hold up the “i” puppet. Students say: “I says /i/.”

It takes a little time to make the puppets, but once they’re done, you can use them over and over and over again!

You can download the templates HERE!

Activity #2: Sand Writing

Having kids trace a vowel in sand while saying the sound is an easy, engaging multisensory activity!

Just put sand on a paper plate, in an aluminum pie tin, or on a small tray. I like to use colored sand, like this (that’s an Amazon affiliate link), but regular sand works just fine too.

There are a few different things you can do with sand:

Option 1: Say a short vowel sound (i.e. /u/). Students repeat the sound. Students then write the correct letter in sand. While they are writing the letter, they say the letter name and sound (“U” says /u/).

Option 2: Use the same procedures for activity #1, where you say a short vowel word and students identify and write the vowel sound they hear. You’ll still want students to say the letter name and sound while they trace.

If you’re out of sand or want to change things up…try the free Sand Draw app!

Although it’s not quite the same as real sand, kids still get the sensory experience of tracing with their finger while saying the sound aloud.

Activity #3: Picture Sorts

This activity is simple but helpful for students who are having trouble differentiating between the vowel sounds.

Give students a set of picture cards for 2-3 sounds total (i.e., some pictures for a, i, and u). Have them name each picture out loud. Then, have them sort the pictures. When they’re finished, they can “read down” the column of pictures, again naming each picture. Once a student finishes reading down the column, he/she identifies the vowel sound that those pictures all contain.

If you need pictures for sorting, you can grab some HERE!

Activity #4: Vowel Fluency Strips

Even when students know the short vowel sounds, they may not always read them correctly in words!

To help them apply that knowledge, they need lots of practice. In-context practice is important (reading real texts), but isolated practice can be helpful too.

These (free) fluency strips are a great way for students to practice paying close attention to the vowel sound in a word!

These free fluency strips are a great way for students to practice paying close attention to the vowel sound in a word! Read the entire post for more short vowel activities AND to grab all the freebies!

If it helps, students can highlight all the vowels before they read across the strip.

Or, you can laminate the strips and have them use dry erase markers. You can put the strips on a ring, too!

A few of the words in the freebie may be unknown to students, so make sure to talk about what they mean, as well.

Activity #5: Short or Long?

As I mentioned at the beginning of the post, students tend to experience vowel confusion once they start learning long vowel sounds.

It’s important to go back and review short vowel sounds (and contrast them to the long sounds). Word sorts and picture sorts are great for this. Another fun, simple activity is a game we play called “Short or Long?”

You say a word (or even just a vowel sound), and students have to call out the vowel sound and whether it is long or short (i.e., “Long A!”).

If you have Slinkys or rubber bands, students can stretch or contract them as they call out the vowel sound (i.e. stretching the rubber band long for a long vowel sound).

If you’re working in a larger group setting, you may want to have students write on a whiteboard rather than call out their answer.

Need More Phonics Activities?

I hope these ideas were helpful to you!! A couple more ideas (I know, I know, I only said 5 but I can’t help myself!) Check out my no-prep phonics games for Kindergarten and 1st grade. There’s a specific set for each of those grades geared towards CVC words.

Other products for CVC words would be the Kindergarten Decodable Readers for CVC words (Set 1 and Set 2) and the 1st Grade Decodable Readers for CVC words. Options are endless!

I also have one more bonus freebie for you – customizable word work games to help your students practice short vowel words or any other words of your choice!

There are many more activities for short vowels and other skills in my phonics program, From Sounds to Spelling.
