Are You Lesson Planning for Long and Short Vowels?

Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas Vowel Sorting Short e & Long e Center Games and Interactive Notebook Activities at TeachersPayTeachers, TpT.
Long and Short Vowels

Students are ready to study long and short vowels and the connection between them when they can read word families (like hat, sat, cat, fat, etc.) and when they are starting to include vowels in their spellings. During this stage, a student might consistently attempting to spell long vowels words, but confusing the spelling, for example, RANE for rain. This is a perfect time to add word work to their day comparing and contrasting long and short vowels.

One of my favorite series of vowel resources that I've created comes with a lot of hands on materials to make your centers, small group and seat work time easier for you and enjoyable for the students.

Today I'm going to share with you the Long e and Short e resource. Once your students are use to the games and printables in this resource, it is the same for a, i, o and u, just with the different appropriate words.

Perfect for Back to School Free Lunch Box Love Notes For Home OR School!

While you're planning and getting ready for back to school, here's one of my favorite freebies for you. Lunch Box Love Notes. 

 Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas FREE Printable Lunch Box Love Notes!

For Teacher-Moms, as tired as we are once August and September hits, we don't want to short change our own children. I remember I really wanted my children to have a good day at school, listen to the teacher. learn a lot and make new friends. But mornings for Teacher-Moms are not like something out of the Full House TV show....many a morning at my house SOMEONE crying over SOMETHING because they weren't the center of attention at that given moment. SOMETIMES it was even me! {Just kidding, OK, no, maybe not....}
  Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas FREE Printable Lunch Box Love Notes at TeacherspayTeachers!
These love notes are a quick and easy way for you to show them some love when they are away from you in that big, ole' school cafetorium, as they call it in my district.  BUT no lie, a very easy prep, I would write five on Saturday afternoon or Sunday night and hide them in my bedroom. That way I was ready to slip one in their lunch box each morning and if they wanted to buy their lunch that day, I had it ready to slip into their backpack. My FREEBIE has enough for 24 notes, that way you can use a different one each school day for a month! 

These Love Notes are also perfect for teachers to use as an End Of The Day student note! ♥

My favorite author, Erma Bombeck once said something about school notes....If they are typed on nice paper and signed in pen, they have been forged by the child, a real Mom has to grab a red crayon and writes on a kitchen napkin. :)
