We’re back with another set of free printable flashcards! This time, we’re talking about short vowel sounds.
Personally, I didn’t learn to read with phonics and neither did our oldest daughter.
Our oldest boy, though, really needed help with phonic sounds, so we focused on long and short vowel sounds pretty early.
I thought I’d make a set of short vowel flashcards to share with my lovely readers today!
These are really simple to use and what makes them even better is that they’re FREE!
Read on to see how to get your set!
And if you like these, don’t miss these long vowel flashcards as well!

Hi, My name is Judy and my husband Don, had a third stroke on May 3rd, 2017. This one effected /affected his brain a lot. Life as gotten a lot harder. He was only 51 when he suffered the first one in 2008. They had to remove a section of his skull for six months. etc But he could talk and laugh and was mentally back after several months of therapy. This last one really sucks, he doesn’t have a conversation with you any more but, he will say something out of the blue. Any way, he has all these therapist coming in and working with him. One, is for speech, and she will have him circle all the n’s on a paper. Boring right? So, I’ve gone on sites like yours to find free fun pages, that are colorful and pleasant for him to do. He is happier doing them. So, bye therapist. I’ve got this with a little help from my friends. We used to play scrabble every day but, he can’t do that any more. But, I found out he can play “Go Fish”. So, I’ve gone crazy printing out multiple sets of flashcard. I’m laminating them and even making my own boxes for them thanks to another site. I just wanted to let you know that you are not only helping moms with their children, you are helping me with my husband, who I love dearly. I want to thank you for sharing free printable with me!
