Turkey Feathers Short Vowel words – short vowels “a”, “i”, “o” With this product you can easily create a Circle Time Activity for you and your class to participate in. This activity helps students listen for the middle vowel sound in small words. This ability to notice, think about and work with individual sounds is called phonemic awareness. Phonemic awareness is a good predictor of future reading success.
The student choses a picture and then names the picture. The student must then decide what vowel sound the picture has. If the student does not know what the vowel sound is, he may choose a friend to help him. He then places it on the correct turkey card.
There is a companion worksheet which can be completed independently to reinforce this skill after the group activity. The worksheet can be turned into the teacher for accountability and grading if needed.
