Know the Code: Short Vowel "i"
This is a multisensory PDF 10 page resource to support students developing reading skills. Students lacking the ability to identify short vowels "i" will continue to struggle to decode and encode basic one-syllable words and multisyllabic words if the skill is not learned to automaticity. Reading fluency will continue to be negatively impacted until students understand and automatically react to short vowels. Strong readers are reading with automaticity - they have gone beyond identifying sounds within words-their brains see the entire grouping of letters of each word and respond.

The activities included in this multisensory resource support student development of the skill "short i."

Additionally, writing development is included. Too often, there is a strong emphasis on decoding and encoding, but writing skills are "lost" in the process. Keep students immersed in writing, using basic writing strategies like COPS - Capitalize, Organization, Punctuation and Spelling.
