There is a sorting mat for each short vowel sound a, e, i, o, u. Each mat has an adorable alphabet character holding a key word picture to help with the short vowel sound. The mats have 5 blank spaces for students to place the pictures that match the vowel sound. There are 6 pictures for each vowel sound and you can choose which 5 to place in your center. All of the pictures are CVC words so for an extra challenge I have included recording sheets for the students to write the words of the pictures they sorted. You may want to put out one mat out at a time with 10 pictures so they can choose the vowel sound or not the vowel sound or your may want to do two or more of them depending on what time of the year it is and the skill level of the students. This center includes phonemic awareness, spelling and handwriting. Just print the pages, laminate and cut out the picture cards and your center is ready to go. If you want to make it self checking you can include an answer sheet or put color stickers on the back of the pictures to match the characters color. I hope you love this center!
