Lesson Plan Title : Busy Bee Vowels

Age Range: Kindergarten through Grade 2 (Elementary Level)

Overview and Purpose : By participating in the following activity, students will begin to recognize the letters that make the short vowel sounds they have been hearing and saying in class.

Objective: The student will be able to match the picture with the correct short vowel sound.

Resources:

Bees with pictures of words that have short vowels

Bee hives with a vowel written on each one

Activities:

Ahead of time, put Velcro on the back of the bees and on the hives. Tape the hives to the white board. Let each student choose a picture. Have them come up to the board, name the picture, and place the bee on the hive that has the correct short vowel sound.

Closure:

Talk about the activity with your students. What other words do they know that have a short vowel sound? Make a list of the names of everyday household items with a short vowel sound. Send the list home with your students, so they can go on a "scavenger hunt" at home!
