Using this spelling short a CVC words resource

Each slide contains a picture of a word containing a short a sound. There are also eight lowercase letters to the right.

To play the game, children will drag the letters from the right to the boxes below the picture.

Once the letters have been placed in the boxes, the sun can be dragged to the side to find the correct spelling. This makes the game self checking.

If you would prefer for the answer to not be there, you can simply delete the spelling of the word and the sun image.

Because the pieces are movable, you might want to save an original copy before letting students begin working. This way, you will have a fresh version once students have moved the pieces.
