This activity focuses on the long and short a sounds. Students can sort the pictures by vowel sounds and record the words on a recording sheet. This activity can also be used as a Write the Room center. The cards can be hung around the classroom for students to search for them. When they find the card they write the word in the correct column according to vowel sound. There are 12 short vowel words and 12 long vowel words. I have included two different recording sheets. One requires students to write 6 out of the 12 words and the other requires students to write all twelve words for each vowel sound. Pictures are included.
