This is an engaging visual for teaching beginning short vowel sounds. A companion song with 6 verses is included in this package. Sing along to the tune of "Old McDonald". Additional activities, like mini lessons, are also included.
This visual could be presented as a large poster (as I did, using a 20"x26" poster board) or as a bulletin board.
Easy to put together. All graphics are done (scarecrow, sign board, "crops", iguana, crop markers) and are printables. Just size, cut out, and attach to board. The board is simple to prepare. Use colored paper, paint, or crayons to make a swatch of blue at the top of the board for the sky and make the rest of the background brown for the garden dirt.
Have fun teaching the vowel sounds!
