This is the first of a three-volume series that may be used in sequence to help provide continuity in building a foundation for reading proficiency, or it may be used for reinforcement.
- 5 Storybooks (1 for each: Short A, Short E, Short I, Short O, Short U)
- 5 Word Lists (1 for each Vowel Family)
- 37 Additional Short Vowel Stories
- Chicken Little & The Wise Owl story
- Directions for Use
Five make-and-take-home storybooks - each short-vowel centered - are included in this volume. While each storybook cover is illustrated, inside pages have been left blank for children to create their own imagery.
These animal-inspired stories turn monosyllabic, rhyming families into appealing, fun-to-read tales. (The prerequisite is that students know the consonant sounds, the blends, and the consonant digraphs - ch, sh, wh, th.)
Word lists for each short-vowel family are listed and can be used for spelling lists, extended study, or flash cards. Finally, several pages of additional short-vowel stories can be used for additional reading, writing, and illustrating.
