Identifying short vowel sounds can be difficult for some students, but when you make it fun and interactive, students will want to practice and won't see it as a phonics 'drill and kill!'
This interactive center will have your students practicing sorting all 5 short vowel types! They will LOVE this center and you will love that they are having fun with learning! It is easy to differentiate for all types of learners! Sort between 2, 3, 4 or all 5 vowels! Use as many or little cards are you want! Make it work for you and your students for optimized success!
The houses are NOT difficult to construct! Photos are included to help! All you will need is cardstock, scissors and some tape!

This Pack Includes:
*5 house templates with instructions for assembly
(each is programmed with one of the short vowel letters-a, e, i, o and u!)
*5 sets of short vowel pictures (20 pictures per set)
for a total of 100 pictures
(most of the pictures are CVC words)
*recording sheets (6 versions for differentiation purposes- 3 have areas for students to draw to record their responses, the other 3 have lines for students to write the words/practice sound spelling)
*B&W printable to use for assessment of mastery, morning work, ‘do now,’ homework, RTI support activity, etc!
**To make an ‘answer sheet’ simply print and laminate a second set of the short vowel picture cards and use as a ‘mat’- after students sort pictures into the houses, s/he can match the pictures onto the mat to see if s/he correctly sorted them all.**
Supports and Aligns with Common Core Standards:
RF.K.2 RF.K.3 L.K.2
How Does The Vowel House Work?:
*Give student(s) the house(s) you want them to work on- or all to sort between.
*Spread the pictures out on a table
*Students find the pictures that have the vowel sound of the letter
on the house and drop it in the house
*When they have found all the pictures, they pick the house up and
check the pictures they have inside against the 'answer mat'!
*They can record the pictures on the recording sheet (either draw
pictures or write the words)
*A follow-up/extension activity is also provided for early finishers!
I promise your students will love this- and ask for it over and over!
Makes a great independent center activity!
