llllloooooonnnngggg vowels!

Long weekend over! Poo! I am not too upset though... it's a short week!! ha! We've been to:
*Jr. League basketball games (end of season!)
*birthday party (yay-PUMP IT UP!)
*yesterday we didn't get out of pj's (my favorite kind of day!)
*today Addie Mae and I had a girl's day! We went "Target"ing for baby shower goodies and to the grocery. We stopped and had a special treat at Sweet CeCe's- it is a chain of yogurt shops where you choose your own flavors and toppings. Addie and I split one and she picked all the toppings (white chooclate chips, rainbow sprinkles, lucky charms, reeses pieces and gummi worms!)

Now to the school stuff:
We are finally getting to the point in our reading series where we start long vowels that aren't CVCe words. There are so many fun activities you can do with these vowel combos! I have created some fun packets to go with Long A (ai, ay), Long E (ea, ee), and Long O (oa, ow). The packets include:
*Read, write, sort around the room
*Pick a word out of the bucket (whole group or center activity)
*Word Ladders
*Making Words activities

I try to differentiate as much as possible and these activities are differentiating friendly. Each packet has a free download on TpT. Here are some examples of what you will see:

All 3 packets have the same activities but with different vowel sounds and spellings. I will have a long I packet posted soon too! If you are interested in these packets please visit my TPT or TN store!

Check it out!! Have a great short week!


p.s. I forgot to take pics of our Presidential Silhouettes we made the other day but I will post later this week b/c they are A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!
