Ou or Ow? A Mustache Fun Phonics Sort
This is a phonics sort focusing on the ou and ow vowel teams and the ow sound heard in cow.
Students will sort each mustache word onto either the mouse, if has an ou spelling, or the clown, if it has an ow spelling. Sixteen words are included in the sort. A directions sheet, which displays the Common Core Standard addressed, and a record sheet are also included.
To prepare this center, print and display the directions sheet. Then print, laminate, and cut out the clown and mouse header cards and the mustaches. Provide a copy of the record sheet for each student.
Half and full page printing options are now available for those wishing to save on ink.
Common Core Standard addressed:
*CCS.2.RF.3b: Know spelling-sound correspondences for additional common vowel teams.

About the Seller
I have been teaching elementary school in an urban district in Massachusetts for six years. I began my career teaching in first grade and have now transitioned into second grade. I especially enjoy creating engaging book studies and center activities for my students.
I believe in providing my students with plenty of positive reinforcement and a variety of ways to access any and all academic content. My lessons incorporate authentic, hands-on, and cooperative learning experiences whenever possible, and I provide many opportunities to build reading and writing skills across all content areas.
I hold a bachelor's degree from Clark University where I majored in Psychology and minored in Education and Sociology. My master's degree is in Teaching and is also from Clark University.
