This is an incredible resource that took months to create. Every single vowel is compared and contrasted to the others for a total of 10 task card sets. No matter what short vowels you are contrasting, there is a page for that week. I use and combination of Words Their Way and Word Journeys developmental spelling lessons and this product fits in any lessons focused on comparing short vowels. Download the sample file to truly appreciate the value of this product.
The following vowel sets were created with high quality graphics, in crisp black and white, with printing in mind:
A compared to E
A compared to I
A compared to O
A compared to U
E compared to I
E compared to O
E compared to U
I compared to O
I compared to U
O compared to U
Every single combination has been created to help you teach your letter name word study kids (short vowels). I needed valuable independent centers that targeted the short vowels I was teaching. I printed each set on different colored cardstock, laminated the cards, and kids use dry erase markers on them. The kids who get finished early, recopy their work onto the dotted lined paper provided.
I cut all of the cards and fastened them together with a metal ring, and included a title page and answer page that are the same size as the rest of the cards so that I could store them nice and neatly together. However, when I put these cards in the center, I remove the answer card and have them bring me their sheet (or completed cards depending on how much time we have) to check. I have also given kids two different sets and had them check each others.
This is exactly what I needed in my centers, and I just wasn't finding it. I hope that you enjoy this resource as much as I do.
