Popcorn activity with vowels

I was browsing in the Target Dollar Spot when I spotted this:

This container has teacher written all over it because a teacher could use it so many different ways.  I immediately thought of my Popcorn Letter Sound homework program.  I made some popcorn cards with vowels written on them.  You could copy these on card stock.  Copy them on different colored card stock if you plan to use this idea with your reading group so each student can keep track of his/her cards.  You say a word such as "bed" and then your students find the vowel that they hear and put it in your popcorn bucket.  The first student to put the correct vowel card in your bucket earns a B.U.G. (my incentive program).  Here's a free popcorn printable for you:


The Popcorn Sounds packet has popcorn cards with all of the letters on them.  You could use this game as review of letter sounds.  To differentiate your lesson, have your students listen for the letter sound in the middle or end of the word, too.  After putting the popcorn card in your bucket ask your student to name other words with that letter sound at the beginning, middle, or end of the word.
