This hands-on, r-controlled vowel resource pack includes 60 puzzles and 42 word building mats to help your students practice spelling words with the following r-controlled vowels:
• ar • or • er • ur • ir
All the included words are phonetically spelled, making them appropriate for little learners to spell independently.
• Word Building Mats: To prepare these activities, laminate the cards and cut in half if desired. Cards can also be placed in a sheet protector to prolong their use. Students will take a card, look at the picture, and build or write the word. Sound boxes are provided. Magnet letters work well for this activity, but it can also be done as a write-and-wipe activity using dry erase markers. I recommend going over the pictures as a whole group before doing this as an independent center activity.
• Puzzles: To prepare r-controlled vowel puzzles, simply laminate and cut out. Students will look at the picture and match the letters to build the word.
A variety of recording sheets are included for each activity, allowing you to use them multiple times. If you do not wish to use the recording sheets, you can make these activities self-checking by writing the words on the back of the cards.

I have been teaching elementary school in an urban district in Massachusetts for six years. I began my career teaching in first grade and have now transitioned into second grade. I especially enjoy creating engaging book studies and center activities for my students.
I believe in providing my students with plenty of positive reinforcement and a variety of ways to access any and all academic content. My lessons incorporate authentic, hands-on, and cooperative learning experiences whenever possible, and I provide many opportunities to build reading and writing skills across all content areas.
I hold a bachelor's degree from Clark University where I majored in Psychology and minored in Education and Sociology. My master's degree is in Teaching and is also from Clark University.
