The SECRET STORIES® Babysitter Vowels™ strategy makes reading those big, multi-syllabic words easy, even for kindergartners! This simple phonics SECRET™ helps kids identify whether a vowel will be making its long ("superhero") sound or its short ("lazy") one!
So many uses and so much fun! Bring the letters alive by transforming kids into letters and SECRET™ phonics patterns to make real words! In small or whole group, there is virtually no end to the word-building fun!
And for those who already have the complete SECRET STORIES® Kit
, these headbands are a great way to reinforce the SECRET™ phonics patterns and their sounds. Just call out a SECRET™ sound and see how fast the correct 'headband-wearing' kids can get assemble to create the corresponding letter pattern....or flip the challenge by calling out the SECRET™ phonics pattern and having the assembled letter kids identify their sound! Then move on to whole words, or even entire sentences! Kids can even work together to create their own...and for even more fun, add a timer to the mix!
The SECRET STORIES® Headbands also provide a great way to include parents in the fun, as students can wear them home to help explain the letter sound and its "SECRET™!"
