Vowel sounds and spelling choices are the focus of the 61 original stories in this set!

These No PREP stories are flexible- I've used them in whole class and small group contexts as well as given them to students to complete either individually or with a partner. They are perfect for use in literacy centres and will complement any phonics/spelling program already in use in your classroom. The stories are pitched mainly at years 2-4, however I've used these stories successfully with students from years 1-6.

You will find at least one story for each spelling choice, as well as stories featuring two or more different ways to spell the focus sound (e.g. ee as in bee/ea as in leaf) in the same story. Students search for words spelt with the focus sound as they read the story. They then circle and sort these words, highlighting the focus sound in each word. For each story I have also included a page where students can illustrate the story. Students will need to use comprehension skills to create this illustration-an added bonus!

Please note: This set contains Australian spelling and is formatted for A4 paper. While I adore TPT resources, when you're not from the U.S. it can be frustrating to purchase resources featuring U.S. spelling. That's the beauty of this set.... it's been created especially for Aussies (& also suitable if your spelling has a U.K. flavour!).
