Valentine's Day ~ Be My Vowel-entine! Valentine's Day is a great chance to give students a super fun activity to practice short and long vowel sound knowledge.
This activity provides students an opportunity to practice recognition of short and long vowel sounds. The list of words included in this activity includes words that have the short and long A, E, I, O, or U sound(s). It also exposes students to the various spellings of short and long vowel sounds. This activity is appropriate for individual or partner work, also can be used as a center activity.
This activity includes 12 large hearts each with a vowel letter printed in the center to be used as sorting pieces and two hearts for word card storage. Also included Are 240 word cards with words containing short and long vowel sounds. 4 student activity sheets are included as well. (2 sheets -students will identify 2 out of 3 words/pictures that have the same vowel sound. 2 sheets -students will identify a word from a list of 3 that contain a given vowel sound.) I suggest laminating the large hearts and the list of words first, then using a paper cutter or scissors to cut them. This activity can be helpful for students at various grades and abilities (advanced Kindergarten to struggling third grade). Enjoy!
