Stress visual tracking and oral blending skills with color-coded short vowel i word family flash cards and picture cards. These specially designed flashcards are formatted to eliminate the confusion between long and short vowels. Students learn to color-code long vowels in yellow and short vowels in green. To highlight visual tracking skills (i.e., the movement of eyes in a left to right progression), students are instructed to shade in one circle as they simultaneously blend respective letter sound(s) into meaningful units. One circle is placed beneath each voiced consonant (b, c, d, f…), and one circle is placed beneath blends and digraphs to represent one combined sound (bl, cl, fl gr, tr, _nk, _ng, _nch…). Additional Music Videos, PowerPoint Slides, Word Lists, and Sight Syllables included.
