This is a hands-on learning activity where children sort between long and short vowels. There is an umbrella included for each vowel. They can pick out a "raindrop" and put under the correct umbrella.
As the teacher, you can decide to add the long and short vowels together, or work on them separately.
*On the recording sheet, there are enough spaces for 4 words.
The words included are: jam, hat, man, nap, cake, gate, game, cane, pen, wet, bell, mess, feet, seem, peel, tree, lit, him, miss, fin, bite, like, mine, rice mom, not, hop, odd, broke, rose, go, bone, hut, run, bus, pup, rude, cube, cute, rule.
