113 colorful squares (15x15 cm) displaying photos of short vowel words. The students absolutely love sounding out the words and then programming the Bee-Bot to travel to the photos on the Bee-Bot mat. It is an amazingly successful activity that reinforces the short vowels. I have chosen pictures of objects that will increase their vocabulary. In addition, I have included the wonderful simple word wheels that students can use to reinforce their ability to recognize the words.If you don't have a Bee-Bot (only $69) students can still use the cards to the locate the photo that goes with the word as an activity.
