A very unique, never- been -done -before, Short Vowel Sound Chart which tells a story and has photographs of two children dialoguing and making the sounds with their mouth. This is tried and true. It works to have Second- Language, Autistic, and every Beginning Reading student laugh and learn the sounds in a very short time.
This chart has met the approval of Principals and who say the photos are especially helpful with their autistic students and diverse learners.
The chart is comprised of 5 (11"x14") panels that fold out. The story helps to create a SOUND lesson which imparts the concept that letters make words and words tell stories. It is a funny story by which children can identify with the lesson, while causing the Phonics Lesson to come alive! It goes like this:
"a" = "ahhhhh, I saw a little mouse; "e" ="ehhhh, I don't care;" "i" = "icky;" "o"= "awwww, its just a little mouse (mouth must form o); "u"= ug (stated in disgust).
After teaching "SHORT VOWEL SOUNDS" over and over again...I had to make it exciting and engaging for me and my students.
