This pack is a great resource to use all year long to help your students practice various literacy concepts related to vowels. This pack includes 18 posters that you can use to introduce each type of vowel: short vowels, long vowels with silent e, r controlled vowels and two vowels walking (as well as a few other combinations that make long vowel sounds). These posters can then be hung up in your classroom for students to look at for writing and reading practice. Mini posters of each larger poster are also included to keep at your guided reading center for quick access/for students to refer to regularly. There are 15+ centers included in this pack to then help students practice all the different vowels. There is a recording sheet and writing extension activity for each center so that you know what your students are doing while in their centers. The writing extension can be done in a 2nd center or in a writing center as a follow up activity. The posters and center activities can be used at different times throughout the year based on what you are teaching and based on which students are still struggling with earlier concepts of vowels. This pack allows for repeated use and differentiation through the various centers included. This entire pack will provide students with meaningful center activities that cover a number of Common Core Standards in an enjoyable format.
