Make short vowels STICK with these short vowel chants! Students will be up and moving as they practice short vowel sounds, as well as segmenting and blending words with short vowels.
Watch the Short O Chant
This file includes a chant for each short vowel (A, E, I, O, & U). The chants are written in a kid-friendly font, and the vowels are highlighted. Four pictures are used in each chant to give students a helpful hint when they are segmenting the words in the chant.
As a way to extend the chant into small group instruction, sight word readers and short vowel puzzle pieces are also included.
Four short vowel words are used in each chant (You can see the specific words listed below). These words have matching images. The words and images are included in a sight word reader for each vowel. The four words and matching pictures are also used in the short vowel puzzle pieces. Students manipulate the puzzle pieces and form the words.
An MP3 file for each chant is also included so that the teacher knows the tune of the chant before teaching his/her students.
