Understanding vowels is essential in building students’ understanding of how words work. To start studying vowels, teachers need to help students learn the different short vowel sounds.
This file folder activity is designed to help build student’s phonemic (sound) and phonological (visual) awareness. I’ve included 3 types of cards for students to sort. Picture cards help students focus solely on hearing vowel sounds. The picture and word cards help students bridge the gap between hearing and seeing how the vowel sounds are spelled. Lastly, I’ve included word cards for students to focus solely on reading the word to hear the sound.
This can be used for guided and independent practice. There are 6 word lists (2 CVC, 2 CVCC or CCVC, and 2 CCVCC, CVCCC, CCCVC). There is a large picture sort that can be divided into two sets. One set can be used in small group and one can be used for independent practice at their seats or back in their classrooms (if you are using this as an interventionist).
