Word Work Wednesday

Finally we get the vowel sounds down - the short vowels - the long vowels - and then it happens.  Bossy R comes along.  Now those vowel sounds we were so sure about are not the same!  This always seems to cause my students to *stall* so I'm taking the bull by the horns car by the steering wheel to help them practice and master these sounds.  Since we will have to *park* here for a while I thought it might be fun to burn a little rubber while we're at it!

Click on the link below to download your parking lot, directions, and bossy r word cards.  Now all you need is a Hot Wheel from the bottom of the toy box and you're ready to roll.  I know.  I know.  The car puns were a bit much but I couldn't help myself.  I'll try to hit the brakes next time.  
Really I will.

  2. I posted and then tried to download it. It says, "It seems you don't belong here! You should probably try logging in?"

  7. Love this idea, I am going to try it with my students next week! Thanks for sharing! :)

  8. Hi I love this so much but for some reason it will not let me print or save. I want to use this at school. Any suggestions?

  9. Hi!
    I'm so glad you can use it! I'm not sure why it won't print or save. I went on to check it out and was able to save it. When it came up as a google doc then I clicked on file then moused down to click download. Once it downloaded I could click on it and save it. Email me at and I can send you the file if you can't get it to work : ) Thanks for stopping by The Bubblegum Tree!


  10. Ha! LOVE your puns:) Thanks for sharing...we're wrapping up our Bossy R instruction right now too, and I can always use more practice with all the forms mixed together! I'm happy to have found you!
