Practice short vowel sounds with a fun hands on activity. Print out Vowel strips (I recommend using card stock), which are color coded. They provide a quick visual for the teacher. This pack also includes pictures of cvc words representing the middle sound. For example, map, bed, bib, fox, and mug. Each student has their own vowel strip and a clothes pin. The teacher shows the picture and says the word, students think and place their clothes pin on the vowel they hear in the word. Have fun!
