These five cute little stories have been helping my first graders remember the sounds of the short vowels for the past 13 years. I hope they will help your students remember those short vowels sounds, especially short E and short I, which are so easily confused.
To clarify, the Short O sound, although spelled o-o-o, is meant to be pronounced as "aw."

I wish I had these before introducing the first two short vowels we learned and plan to use them with the remaining short vowels and for review. My learner needs extra, creative reinforcement so this is a perfect fit! Thanks!
