This product can be used for a quick and easy reading lesson or reading center. The product includes 10 pages of 4-piece puzzles representing long and short vowels. Each puzzle contains four words beginning with a single long or short vowel. For example, the "short a" puzzle has the words ant, apple, alligator and ax. Initially I was going to put pictures with each word, but later decided that I wanted students to sound out the words and focus on the letters as opposed to guessing from the pictures. The puzzles can be copied and consumed as one-time use for students, or they can be copied onto card stock and laminated to be used again and again, year after year.
