In this resource you will find a lists of ten words to help your student master the short vowel sounds a, e, i, o, and u. The lists are differentiated by color with yellow being the lowest, blue being the middle, and red being the highest. I use this resource with my own special education 3rd and 4th graders daily during their word work center. Also provided with the lists are printable word wall cards. Each week I have my students practice a new word sound using various activities and games. I also assign homework with the words. Then at the end of the week, students are assessed for their knowledge of the words.
