When I teach my short vowels phonics unit I use BOTH this short vowels word work book & the short vowels word work - interactive phonics notebook. I use this book (this product) as a whole group introduction and then I use the Interactive Phonics Notebook for morning work & literacy centers. Using both of these products has been so powerful for my students!
The sounds that the vowels make can be the most challenging for students to grasp. I spend a lot of time working with my students to make sure they fully understand the short vowel sounds. I have found that through the use of the stories contained in this short vowels book, my students develop a solid understanding of the short vowels sound. The characters in this story help the students when recalling the vowel sound. If they forget a sound a helpful cue is "think of Iggie the ignuana." Also, the word hunt further helps students identify the significance of short vowel sounds and understand the sounds they make. After the unit - your students have a book that they are so proud of and that they can look back to, read, and use to remember those short vowel sounds!
