This product includes 5 sorting mats for long and short vowels A, E, I, O, and U, along with full color images to sort. These mats and images can be printed on card stock and laminated for durability. You can use them for teacher modeling or as a center.
This product also includes five B&W cut-and-paste sorts for the same vowels. These are perfect to use as the "we do" or "you do" of guided release after you have modeled the sort using the mats.
Please note that the u sort includes long vowel pictures that make both the traditional long u sound, as in cube, and the /oo/ sound, as in glue. Phonics systems and curricula vary on whether they consider the latter sound as the long u sound.
As a special education teacher, I made sure to use a clear, easy-to-read font and to keep distractions like fancy borders, etc., to a minimum.
