Sounds Fun Phonics: A Terrific Gem

Each time I teach first grade, I struggle with how to make learning all the vowel pair sounds explicit.  For readers, it comes so naturally.  But for my kids who struggle, learning a vowel pair sound and its different spellings in one week is nowhere near enough time.  This summer, I purchased vowel pair cards from here.  This site is truly a gem.  Heidi has created a program where kids get moving and as a result, get learning. 

I decided to take her cards and create a Power Point.  (No, SmartBoard. )  So, beginning tomorrow, this will become part of our Morning Opening.  I hope that over time, all kids will be successful with learning the vowel pairs. 

Happy Teaching and Learning!
