I really enjoy having my students create a product with vowel patterns and word families that we learn. Here is a "Bee Hive" that my students created for the long e (ee) vowel pattern. I had them write sentences using the ee vowel pattern in words. This is a great activity because it allows them to see the vowel pattern being used in many different words. In this product, there are the hexagons used for the bee hive cells, bees, and the title for their work "My B____ Hive".
