Vowel Teams Word Building Activity

Working on vowel teams is an essential literacy skill for kindergarten and first grade students. We are loving this digital word building activity that focuses on teaching vowel teams.

This word work activity gives students an interactive, yet hands-on opportunity to work with words, even if they don’t have access to manipulatives, printables, and classroom supplies.

As students practice with this phonics activity, they will learn a lot about the different long vowel sounds, vowel teams, and spelling patterns in words. They will become more familiar with words including these vowel teams:

  • ai
  • ea
  • ee
  • ie
  • oy
  • au
  • aw
  • ei
  • ui
  • ey
  • oi
  • oa
  • ay
  • eu
  • ow
  • ue

This digital activity is simple for students to understand, making it a great option for independent work at school or at home. It would also make a great whole group activity when introducing vowel teams.

Mastering Vowel Teams

This digital vowel teams word building activity has 19 slides for students to practice with. This makes differentiating the activity to meet the needs of students easy to do. Simply assign less slides to make the activity easier or more slides to make it more challenging.

Another great way to differentiate is by re-ordering or deleting slides to only assign the slides with the vowel teams your students need to focus on most. You can split your students into leveled small groups and assign vowel team slides that way.

This activity is perfect for small groups and literacy centers as students can work at their level without feeling overwhelmed.

This vowel team activity will help students understand the different sounds as they decode and practice reading the words. They’ll also get a deeper understanding of spelling patterns so they can be successful when they write the words later on.

Since this activity is digital, it requires no prep and can easily be assigned using various digital learning platforms, such as Google Classroom, Seesaw, etc.

To play the game, students will look at the picture on the slide. They’ll look at the letters given in the word. Finally, they’ll look at the 4 vowel team options and choose the vowel team that completes the word by dragging and dropping it into the box representing the missing vowel team.

This activity will also encourage critical thinking skills as students determine what the picture represents and then complete the word to match.

This vowel team word building activity would be a great assessment activity to see how your students are grasping the concept as well.
