Short Vowel Phonics 1
Short A, I, O, U, EBook - 2007
Short Vowel Phonics 1 is a decodable easy-reader book. The Short Vowel Phonics series is designed for kindergartners, first grade students, and struggling readers who have mastered: 1) sound-letter relationships and 2) memorized four non-phonetic sight words (a, has, is, the), and are now ready to practice decoding short vowel words. This book consists of 10 stories using only short vowels with limited sight words. The fictional short stories vary from 18 to 38 words. All letters of the alphabet are used in the book with the exception of vowel "y". Pictures are specifically planned to engage the child, but do not encourage the child to use the picture to guess how to decode a word. Each story is short, focusing on one vowel sound, so that a child can most easily experience success and therefore increase his or her reading confidence. The book received a very positive review from Kirkus Discoveries.
