Bell Work

Short A Sound

Get some pictures of objects that have the short 'a' sound as well as several that have other common sounds. You will need several sets of these pictures (one for each table). Have your kids pick out those pictures that have the short 'a' sound. Have them write the names of the objects for writing and spelling practice.
