Students can practice their short vowel medial sounds with the Clam Short Vowel Sort and Flipbook. Students can create a clam and sort a, e, i, o, or u short vowel medial sounds in their clam. I have my students write the name for each picture in their clam. Their are 5 Direction Posters for each vowel for the Clam Sort in color and b&w(grayscale). Students can also practice the short vowel medial sounds with the Clam Flipbook where students create a flipbook and sort the pictures under the correct vowel based on the medial sound. I also have my students write the name for each picture in their flipbook. I love using these for my literacy centers when I teach my Ocean Unit. This activitiy goes well with anything beach, pirate, sea or ocean themed.
