Know the Code: Short Vowel "a"
This multisensory resource, in PDF format, is based on the principles of Orton Gillingham and designed to support decoding, encoding, comprehension and reading fluency. This resource is just one of the many that focus on short vowels. If you like this multisensory resource, then please review the others in my "shop!"

Additional skills developed with this multisensory unit:

Phonemic Awareness
Reading Strategies
Writing Activities
Reading fluency
Processing speed
Working Memory
Long term memory
Word Retrieval

Brain development and degrees of maturation are as varied and as different as each student. This resource provides opportunities for repetition, review, and practice using multisensory strategies for short vowel /a/. It is important students have time to process this short vowel (u) because students often confuse it sound with other short vowel sounds.
