Circus Vowels-Giveaway!!

Some of my kiddos are just zipping along...getting better and better at reading. They just seem to instinctively be able to decode words. But I also have some kiddos who are struggling with decoding.

They do okay with CVC words, but after that, they get bogged down. What sound does this letter make here? How does it sound now? I recently came across a new book that is going to help my little pumpkins with this skill!

What a fun way to teach the rules about short & long vowels! I think this is really going to work for my kiddos.

I was so excited when the author, Jodi McMaster agreed to offer a copy for a giveaway! How awesome is that?! Here's what you need to do:

  1. Be a follower of my blog & leave a comment below saying so.
  2. Go check out Circus Vowels. Take a look around...view a video (or 2)...check out the worksheets. Then come back here & leave a comment to let us know how you will use this in the classroom, or what skill you are working on with your kiddos & how this book can help.
Bonus entry: Blog about this giveaway & leave a comment linking to that post.

How easy is that?! The giveaway will close on Wednesday, March 14th. 10:00 PM.
Good luck!

  6. I love this! I would definitely use this to help my students learn the concept of long vowels, which they have some difficulty with.

  9. My kiddos are struggling with CVCe words and are now even struggling with CVC words because they are over applying the long vowel rule they learned with the CVCe words. Ugh! I know this book would help them remember the rules because each rule is built upon the one before it. How cute!

  14. Hi! I'm now a follower of your blog!

    I am an SLP in the schools and work with phonological awareness skills primarily but have also ventured into a bit of reading and spelling. I looked at the book and the videos and I would love to use this book as a classroom RTI intervention for at risk kids!

  18. I can use the worksheets when I tutor. These are a perfect addition for two of my ESL students that have trouble with phonics and decoding.

    I plan on using these during my next tutoring session.

  20. I just checked out the book, I like it a lot. I believe I would use it as an introduction to vowels, and a reinforcement later.

  29. I have heard so much about this book lately. My class either knows their vowel sounds or they are struggling especially with e and i so this book would really help!
