Product Description
Short Vowels-
I’m excited to share my very first set of short vowel mini-readers with you. I use them to align with Orton-Gillingham methodology, but they will work well with any beginning reader program or reading intervention.

This set contains 15 short vowel mini readers, one for each short vowel and 6, two-way short vowel sorts and 1, five way sort to review all 5 short vowels. The following sorts are included:
-all short vowels

Teacher Tips
-Each short vowel has 3 mini-readers. The first one is for building phonemic awareness, the second and third for controlled decoding practice. It is noted that the 2nd mini-book is slightly easier than the 3rd mini-book for every vowel. I left them in black and white if you’d like students to color them in after.
-Cut apart all six pages of each mini-book and staple them across the top, horizontal line.
-Each mini-book can be sent home as take home practice when you are done using them for in-class instruction.
-All of the sorts are 2-way sorts, except for the last one, which is for all short vowels.
They are all in color and black and white options.
-When I do the picture sorts with my students, I make two copies of it. I laminate one, and cut apart the other for kids to sort separately into 2 categories. Then they say the name of the picture, the short vowel sound it makes and lay it on top of the laminated mat.
