This is a Phonics Crossword Puzzle that provides students with a review of long and short vowel sounds. To fill in the puzzle students answer 8 "Across" prompts and 8 "Down" prompts. They fill in 18 different vowels, because 3 of the words are missing more than one vowel letter. Nine answers are short vowels and nine are long. This resource is most suitable for 2nd graders and 1st graders at the end of the year. It would also be challenging for high-functioning kindergarteners and high-functioning 1st graders at any time of the school year. It could also be used with 3rd graders who struggle with phonics and have not yet mastered short and long vowel sounds.The product comes with an answer key.
