Short Vowel Safari

In between moving classrooms, making several to-do lists, and enjoying my last few days of summer break, I've been thinking about my 3rd grade word study program {you can find it here}.  Tonight, I made this game.  Click on the picture to check it out in my TpT store (sorry but this is no longer a freebie).

I decided that I am going to make my first unit be a short vowel review.  The first full week that I have students will be a 4-day week anyway.  I didn't want to waste the week by not starting our word study yet.  I figure this will be a good way to introduce the students to my expectations and get back in the swing of things.  I haven't made my word study list yet for this unit (on the to-do list though!), but I made this game tonight to use during that week.  There's also a printable activity at the end to reinforce the skill.  I'll also have a few first graders and kindergarteners that can play this game during the year, so it should serve several purposes.
