Teacher's Creatures Long Vowel Neighborhoods are a collection of 17 long vowel word family houses. There are 3 houses for long A, 3 for long E, 4 for long I, 3 for long O, and 4 for long U. Each house features a picture of the Teacher's Creatures phonics puppet that teaches the corresponding long vowel sound. Students and/or teachers generate long vowel words that follow the appropriate spelling rule for each house. Teachers can print and laminate a class set to display on the wall. Lamination creates a dry erase surface that can be reused year after year. Teachers can also print additional copies for students to fill in and take home. Each neighborhood includes a cover for student books. A street sign is included for each neighborhood if you choose to display the houses on your wall. Houses measure 8 in. x 5.5 in.
The stories and motions for Teacher's Creatures Long Vowel Puppets are ONLY available with my product "Teacher's Creatures Long Vowel Puppets (Teacher Set with Stories and Motions)", which I recommend purchasing as well, so that students will be familiar with the creatures featured on the houses.
