Product Description
Teaching short vowels can be fun using this newly created Short Vowel Go Fish card game set.

Suitable for all ages in need of learning or revising their short vowel sounds. This game uses pictures where the short vowel sound is the beginning sound of the word.

It encourages visual and verbal letter name identification and recognition of the vowel letters, in uppercase or capital letters, lowercase or small letters and matching them to the beginning sounds of the pictures.

As children, can also have the opportunity to cut out the cards themselves, this aspect is good for addressing fine motor control.

Relates to the following specific National Curriculum Standards:

UNITED STATES National Curriculum Kindergarten Literacy Standards:

RF.K.1.d – Recognize and name all upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
RF.K.3.b – Associate the long and short sounds with the common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels. (obviously this game only addresses the short vowel component of this standard).
