Build 31 sets of long and short vowel words with this Vowel Buddies full set. It includes a whole class activity as well as a small group set using 12 picture cards. Children learn to distinguish between long and short vowels in whole group by each holding a letter in the word and seeing the difference their friend "e" can make. Small groups use picture cards and letter tiles to spell words that complete sentences. The rule, Two Vowels Go Walking, is on an Anchor Charts. The activity is also written and illustrated on Anchor Charts showing children the steps in which to follow. 31 sets of words can be made from 26 color (and 26 black line) full size letter cards and a set of 48 tile cards for small group activity. This has been a wonderful resource for my students for over 20 years! I believe your students will enjoy this! Thanks for viewing my product.
