Vowel Round Up8:00 PM
Until recently, we have just grazed over which letters are vowels and which are consonants, but now Bria is advancing in phonics, so we needed more practice! After reviewing the vowels a couple times, I put together a little activity for the, to practice on their own...a vowel round up! And it was right up their alley! I took two wooden boxes (the girls use these as horse pens) and labeled them vowels and consonants.
Then I took all their little horses and labeled them with letters. I positioned them into a herd on the kitchen floor.
Next I turned them loose, and they got the job of rounding up all those wild horses into the correct pen!
It didn't take them long to sort them, and they did it three times! Then they asked to play again a couple days later!
They love horses, so that certainly encouraged them to practice. This would be a simple activity to do with cars or dinos or anything really!
