Classroom Considerations

  • Students should have some additional instruction about vowel sounds before completing this activity

Lesson Planet is a wonderful resource. I can easily search for lesson ideas and love the great printables. Lesson Planet has cut down on my planning time because I can usually find tried and true lessons on any subject. Why reinvent the wheel?
