Introduce short vowel sounds with the help of these Vowel Pals. Each Vowel Pal has an interactive activity and a song to help students learn the short vowel sounds. Students have opportunities to make words containing common spelling patterns for each short vowel sound. The Vowel Pals give feedback for each response the children make. The culminating activity gives the children an opportunity to read the list of words with that spelling pattern. At the conclusion of the activity, the Vowel Pal sings his song with the students as the bouncing ball helps them keep pace with the lyrics. The Vowel Pals are loaded with personality! Your students will love them!
