Are you looking for a new way to help your students practice determining long vs. short vowels in their reading? Flippy Dolphin is just for you. In this packet, students will work on reading words one way and then using Flippy Dolphin to help them "flip the vowel sound" if the word doesn't make sense. After completing this unit, your students will be experts on using this reading strategy and will be able to apply it to their own independent reading. I hope you enjoy this unit and look for my other reading strategy units: Stretch It Out - Word Building with Stretchy Snake and Chunky Monkey Word Strategies.
