The Vowel Mats with matching cards helps students isolate the beginning, ending and medial sounds.
There are 10 mats in all, 5 for the short vowel sounds, and 5 for the long vowel sounds, with 8 cards per mats.
Cut out the cards, and then let the students sort them by placing them on to the right vowel mat. Does it belong to Short A or the Long A mat?
The cards are all labeled, and provide a good opportunity for students to read CVC and blend words.
Use the cards to identify beginning and ending sounds, blends, and bossy E words.
