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!
