Are you looking for an engaging way to teach and review short vowel sounds? This interactive notebook product is designed to be a reference tool as well as practice/application for teaching short a, short e, short i, short o, and short u. Each phonics/spelling pattern comes with an information page (Learning Side) and several activities to practice the pattern (Thinking Side). If you don't use this format, you can use the information pages as teaching tools and use the practice activities in the student notebooks.
This Product Includes:
* Detailed directions for notebook set up and implementation
* Table of Contents for student notebooks
* An informational page for each short vowel
* Word family flaps for each short vowel
* Word sort for each short vowel
This product was designed to be used with a regular spiral notebook, so if you're using composition notebooks, you'll have to shrink it down.
How I Use This Product in my Classroom
I spend about week on each phonics/spelling pattern, working on various activities; however, 2-3 mini-lessons in the interactive notebook. The first day we glue in and review the information page. Students will interact with the new information by highlighting the important information or taking notes. Depending on how much time I have, I will also introduce and get started on the word family activity. The second day students complete the word family flaps, and the third day they complete the word sort and write additional words that follow the pattern at the bottom of the page.
