Cards for each short vowel word family (a,e,i,o,u) with fall clipart as the background. A CVC word is on each card for students to build the word!

Letter tiles are included for students to build the word for each picture card. You can choose to leave the word intact and students can simply match the word to each picture, OR the letters can be cut apart for students to build the word letter by letter.
These picture cards also work well with magnet letters, or dry erase markers. The letter tiles can also be put on clothespins for students to clip the letters to each picture card.
