Learning vowels can be very challenging for young readers because they make different sounds in different words. Each vowel letter can make at least two sounds: a long sound and a short sound. When reading, students must decide whether the vowel in the word makes its short or long sound. This center helps students practice the rule where adding the silent “-e” at the end of a short vowel word turns that word into a long vowel word. Cute graphics that illustrate the words make this center bright and engaging and keeps students motivated as they learn. After completing the center, students have a worksheet on which they can record their results. This worksheet can be turned into the teacher for accountability.
It you enjoy this center, please remember to rate it. Thanks, Barb
