I know what you must be thinking. ANOTHER vowel sorting activity. I know… but it is SO important that our kinders and first graders learn to read and write those vowels correctly. Even when you think they mastered the sounds months ago, it’s always good to go back and review to be sure this skill is solid. Adding a little variety and a seasonal-twist helps keep what may seem like a drill and practice activity fun! My inspiration for this activity–of course, a stroll through the aisles of our local Walmart. I found these cute little watering cans in the toy section towards the back of our store. They were only $1.00. If you cannot find the watering cans, a flower pot would work great too! Be sure to differentiate the activity by choosing which and how many vowels to use during your small group intervention. For those students just learning vowel sounds, begin with two dissimilar sounding vowels such as the /a/ and /o/ and then add more vowels and closer sounding vowels.
There are 31 different vowel pictures in this activity. I’ve included the direction sheet
