With this activity students will practice identifying and sorting short vowels and long vowels. Students will also practice identifying and sorting long vowel teams (ai, ae, ie, etc.). Student will sort the cards into the correct vowel turkey. The turkeys can be used in two ways! First, you can cut out the turkey and the center of the turkey. Then, glue the turkey on a bag and students will “stuff” the turkey by placing the picture cards/words with the correct vowel turkey. You could also keep the center of the turkey in place and simply have students place the picture cards/words on top of the turkey.
There are 15 picture cards/words for each vowel! For a total of 75 cards! The cards can be used with pictures only, pictures and words, or words only. They are all included!
Students can record the words they use on the recording sheets provided!
