Short Vowels

G’tums was having trouble remembering which vowel made which sound, so we decided to do a little project that was fun and now he has them mastered.

We cut off the bottom of a file folder and glued in these little cards. He cut out and colored the clip art on the front which was taken from the Dinah Zike Line Art Library. He punched out the letters on my Big Shot. And he cut out the words that I typed that began with the short vowel sounds and glued them into the corresponding mini book.

This project was adapted from an idea in the book: Foldables and VKVs® for Phonics, Spelling, and Vocabulary PreK-3rd by Dinah Zike.

    Great idea! Isn’t it amazing that so often when a hard to grasp concept is made ‘fun’ the learning kicks in and they get it!!! Looks great!
