Just like my Gingerbread Vowel Sort, this fun vowel sort uses the same words (both long and short vowel words), with Santa holding them on cards, in a hands-on way. Just copy the pages on tag board, laminate for durability, and cut out the pieces. Hole punch the bottom of each Santa's Shop and the top and bottom of each cut out Santa. Unfold large paper clips. Students will string the Santas together as they sort the words between long and short vowels. Packet includes a long and short vowel Santa's Shop pages, many Santa pages with both long and short vowels on the cards, and 2 activity pages for students to "Show what they know" when they are finished. This activity makes a great center or a "Working with Words" activity!
