My team is giving a common assessment on the Common Core Standard of distinguishing between long and short vowel sounds in one syllable words this Friday. (We were a little ambitious since this is just our first week of school!) This long and short vowel sorting activity should give my kids some extra practice. Students read the words on the cards and sort them according to the vowel sound. This can be done in either a literacy station, in small groups, or even handed out and used as a whole group activity.
