This silly r-controlled poem is one for the turkeys. Students will giggle as they discover r-controlled vowels throughout this poem.
Control at Thanksgiving? Thank goodness I’m not talking about Thanksgiving dinner…or pumpkin pie.
There simply isn’t much control when it comes to that. It’s a day when I eat all my vegetables: mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole (with the brown sugar and pecans) and broccoli casserole.
You can’t deny they are vegetables, I”m just pretty sure they don’t have the full nutritional value they were intended to have.
MMMMM! I’m talking r-Controlled vowels, of course.
R-controlled Vowels poem
I created this poem a few years ago as a shared reading for my second grade teachers.
The sort sheet is for an independent center activity on another day.
I know the poem is a little absurd, but I tried to put as many r-controlled vowel words in it as possible.
I have a set on TPT that includes the poem (both b&w and color), a vowel sort (with answer sheet) and an r-controlled anchor chart (b&w, color with no border, and color with border).

Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
There are other r-controlled vowel activities in my store.
