Vowel Sticks Those short vowel sounds can be so tricky!
Blending sounds and putting words together can be a tricky thing to master, but my son was anxious to practice when I brought out a tub full of pool noodle letters. The idea is pretty simple. See disclosures for more details. Next, write the letters of the alphabet on the front of the slices, using one color for consonants and another color for vowels.
Then place the letters in a container with an edge. Let the reading fun begin!
Have the children start making words by placing two consonant color slices on the outside with a vowel colored slice on the inside. Have them sound their combination out to see if it is a real or nonsense word. The separate colors for vowels and consonants makes it easy for new readers to distinguish between the two and get that vowel in the middle.
This could be a fun water activity too if you have a small kiddie pool or something with a ledge. These letters float, and the kids can splash and read at the same time. Feel free to pin and share it with your friends.
Have a great summer everyone, and Happy Reading!A few months ago, my good friend Keri from the Sweet Life of Teaching was preparing for a training that she was about to offer. On the table was a roll of vinyl chalkboard paper (I’ve never seen or heard of it until this time).
As she was describing what it was and how she uses it in her classroom, I was literally getting goosebumps. Here are a few of my favorite activities for introducing and teaching short vowel sounds and CVC words.
There’s a little bit of assembly involved for each activity, but you’re done, you’ll have three activities that will last for years! Central venous catheters (CVCs) are used to put medicines, blood products, nutrients, or fluids right into your blood.
