Who are they for?

I love using these for my younger, and even not so young learners. They just work. The concept is simple, the making of these is not!! it took me an age!

This is the big worksheet, covering all the vowel sounds in one big worksheet.

They have the five short vowel sounds with long vowels introduced. all the short sounds are inside the body of the animal and for the full, and most of the single worksheets, the words outside the outline of the animal are all long vowels.

How to use these colouring sheets?

Students have to identify the difference between the sounds and colour them according to the key / code on each worksheet.

They really are great to help recognise the difference between long and short vowels, and for teachers they are super easy to mark as its colour coded! for ones where students do a good job they can also be used as a display as well. I have done this most years when I do this activity.

I have two versions on the site, one is the single sounds, more aimed if you introduce the sounds individually, and a bigger worksheet that has all of the sounds and long vowels if you are doing the activity in for later years.

This is the PDF version, and this is FREE!

if you want the single vowel colouring sheets, you can find them here 🙂 https://makingenglishfun.com/portfolio/colour-by-short-vowel-phonics-worksheets/

and if you want the editable template you can find it here in the shop 🙂

Most of resources can be premium downloaded below, they are all editable so you can adapt them for your, classes, students and schools. It also helps me with the costs of running the website!

The editable version is so you can change it to suit your classrooms and students. It costs a dollar.

Success! You're on the list.

I have been a teacher of English for over 15 years, in that time i made hundreds and thousands of resources and learnt so much i think its worth sharing. Hopefully to help teachers and parents around the world.
