As a matter of fact, I even have a vowel freebie for you too! In class, we become vowel addicts. We do vowel mystery pictures and we search for the vowels in CVC words. We highlight using our crayons.
There are 4 differentiated Mystery Pictures (easy version shown), 4 Vowel Hunts in context, and CVC fill in the vowel (not shown).
Then we do name art…. Oh how I love this!!!!
Students color their name before they cut the squares they need. They use yellow and pink crayons on the corresponding paper just to help them to not get overwhelmed. If you teach first grade, you will love, love, love this. Your students will become vowel lovers and this will help them become reading rock stars.
And now for my favorite thing ever!!!!! Look at my new teal pocket chart. Its not nasty blue! The vowel pennant is a freebie for you my friends!
I found these border holders at Target.
I was hoping they were only a $1,
but even at $3 this was a steal.
You will need three and 1 roll of pretty tape ($1.50)
Cut off black strips.
I used clear tape just to hold the 3 charts together.
Then use pretty tape to go across the back.
You could sew them together.
I own a sewing machine, but I don’t want to sew them.
I like tape, especially pretty tape.
