Learning about short vowel sounds is part of a great foundation in early literacy.
After all, when we teach early readers to decode CVC words, the short vowel sound in the center is what separates the two consonants.
But early learners tend to remember concepts best when they get to incorporate movement in each lesson.
So these interactive vowel houses make a wonderful short vowel sounds activity for increasing phonics skills!
This is a fantastic activity for literacy centers or morning tubs! You can reuse the vowel houses and let students practice matching up the correct sounds again and again.
