This is a bundle of my best-selling long vowel units for a discounted price than if purchased separately!
Beginning readers need to have a solid understanding of those tricky long vowel sounds. I have created a variety of engaging activities to help your students grasp the long a, e, i, o, and u sounds and their various patterns. All activities are ready to go and require no additional prep work other than printing and copying! These activities meet Common Core State Standards for first grade:

Included are activities for:
-Long a - a-e, ai, ay
-Long e - ee, ea, e
-Long i - i-e, ie, igh, y
-Long o - oa, ow, o-e
-Long u - u-e, ue, ui, ew, oo
