Here are a few ideas on using these with your students or children.

If you have not done an activity like this before, begin by reviewing the vowels. We like to sing Old MacDonald had a vowel, A – E – I – O – U.

Next, go through each vowel and have your child practice saying the sounds.  After that warm-up, you are ready to start the activity.

Vowel Activities for Kindergarten

What is the missing vowel?

At the beginning, I would suggest doing this activity with adult support.

  • Start by saying the picture.
  • If your child is able, have them say the word broken up where each sound is emphasized.
  • b – a – t
  • Next, ask what sound do they hear in the middle. If needed, you can say emphasize the b and then pause to see if they will fill in what you did earlier. If that doesn’t work, then just have them repeat each sound with you. When they make the “a” sound, ask them to point to the vowel that makes that sound.
  • When they have chosen the sound, have them place the vowel on the blank space and point to each letter as they say each sound.
  • Finally, let them use the clothespins to mark the correct letter. It never hurts to get in some extra fine motor practice.

Work through rest of the clip cards, and then slowly pull back so they can become independent. At the end, they will be more comfortable with each vowel sound and the fact that every word has a vowel.  This activity uses CVC Words.  Looking for more practice, try 35 CVC Words Activities.
