Lesson 1 - Short Vowels

Apple, Adam, and At all have something in common. What is it? They all start with the short A sound. The first lesson plan of set in the Word Recognition and Fluency series introduces readers to short vowel sounds with a series of interactive activities. Listeners track readers as they say the sounds, a fill-in-the-blank game challenges them to guess missing sounds, and printable worksheets give them additional practice opportunities.
