I’ve never been big on mythological things until I started reading books like Harry Potter and Twilight (yes, I read and loved Twilight. Although, The Host by Stephenie Meyer is far far better). Anyway, after getting into some of these alternate realities I started enjoying reading about the myths and how they started. Vampire’s in particular have some interesting history. Vampires date back over 6000 years! Crazy! But that’s not why I wanted to make a Vampire CVC Matching set. I just found this adorable clipart from Melonheadz Illustrating and couldn’t resist. That’s also why I made the PreK and Tot Packs a few years back…
So Logi-Bear is gearing up to learn to read. I’ve talked about this ad nauseam for weeks, sorry. But he’s getting so close to being ready and I’m just trying not to rush him. So I’m putting together ideas that practice his skills but not push him forward too fast.
My idea with these was to match the image to the word family sound. So the bats with hat and cat would be matched with the -at sound. This CVC matching could also be used for rhyming. It’s a fine line at this point! But it would work both ways!
We started with just 4 of the vampire word families. Each vampire has two bats that match it. I just laid out the vampires and bats…
And we went through the bat words one at a time. We used these by segmenting words. “This bat has a pan. p-a-n. Pan.”
For rhyming I would just say the word family out loud “at, what rhymes with at?” and go from there.
