Phonics/ Word Study- Short Vowel Sound Posters
-It is essential that students know the short vowel sounds.
- Display these posters in the classroom as a visual aid.
- Chant a little song with each poster along with a movement.
A says a (say sound), like apple,
A says a, a, a (say sound).
(To incorporate the kinsethetic learners, we motion like you are eating an apple as you chant.)
- This chant, along with the visual posters and movements have been an effective way of teaching short vowel sounds.
- This knowledge tranfers over not only reading but writing as well.
