What is your child’s favorite fairy tale? This week’s #teachECE topic is fairy tales and my daughter dove head first into her Little Red Riding Hood fairy tales short vowel activities.
J loves coloring-be it with crayons, markers or chalk! Yes, she colored her white desk recently with orange chalk because she wanted a new color. Naturally, I had to channel that coloring love towards something else or her room will be another color.
FAIRY TALES SHORT VOWEL ACTIVITIES
Before you can start all the fun you need a few things: (Please note that affiliate links are used below for your convenience):
- Cardstock for printing
- Printer (we absolutely love our Epson Stylus NX530 )
- Crayons or Markers
- Little Red Riding Hood Short Vowel sheets (at the end of this post)
These fairy tales short vowels coloring pages are pretty straight forward.
- Simply print and then explain what they need to do.
- Explain the key for example if you see a word that has the short a sound in it then you will color it red.
- Work with one color a time to avoid any confusion. My daughter came up with this actually. She decided to do all the short a words first and then moved on to e short vowels.
- Allow them to read each word as they are about to color the area.
