This is an activity designed to help students realize the difference between long vowel sounds and short vowel sounds. I noticed my second graders, although they knew vowel digraphs, still occasionally mixing up short and long vowel sounds. So I created this sort to help them differentiate between the sounds. In this sort, I included short and long patterns for each vowel. This has helped to improve my students' reading fluency.
