Long Vowel Sound Interactive Flip book with QR codes - Common Core Aligned

This interactive flip book is designed to help students master their long vowel sounds. The flipbook is five pages long and is simple to construct (and successfully tested on a 5 year old). It is especially beneficial for auditory and kinaesthetic learning styles.

Vowels are the building blocks of words and are essential when learning to read and write. Understanding and hearing vowels properly will improve spelling, reading, speech, and comprehension. This resource supports students in developing their phonological awareness {CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.K.2, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.1.2} and phonics and word recognition {CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.K.3, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.1.3, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.2.3}.

Interactive component:

7 QR codes: Each long vowel sound links to a specific long vowel sound storybook (created by ( viewed via YouTube. The story is approximately 3 minutes long, and introduces the vowel sound and reads aloud a collection of words (with visual cues) focusing on the specific sound. 

Word lists: The Long Vowel Sound Interactive Flipbook is 5 pages long with 1 page per vowel sound (see preview for a look). Each page includes multiple images listing all spelling patterns for the vowel sound, and a list of words (see spelling patterns and word lists below).

Room to write: Each page includes a large space for students to write their own words with long vowel sounds. This is a terrific literacy centre activity. The students could watch a vowel sound story, find words around the classroom and then write them in their flipbook. 

This flipbook is a great activity, resource and assessment tool for the classroom, but also perfect for home learning. The QR code links are a great home-learning activity, especially for early and emergent readers.

Check out my Long Vowel Sound Poster Bundle. It complements the Interactive Flipbook with 28 posters and 5 bookmarks. 
Happy reading, writing and spelling!
