Did you know that vowels are STICKY??

Happy 4th of July to all my American friends!
I am linking up with Cara @ The First Grade Parade for some “Throwback Thursday” fun!

If you haven’t you need to! I had my students watch it to review letter sounds.
It has a cute little song for vowels that goes like this:
We’re A-E-I-O-U,
We’re the vowels!
 We’re the glue,
To stick the words together,
We’re very sticky letters!
We’re very sticky,
very icky, sticky-icky letters!
While singing it, I have my students link their fingers together and pretend like they can’t get them apart (like they are so sticky, just like the vowel letters).

I also made some glue bottle vowels that stay up on the board all year long (I got the idea from my favorite teacher-friend down the hall from me). It’s a great reminder for my students that the vowels are the letters that “stick the words together” (like glue)!

And guess what? I made some for you! These ones are much cuter than my original glue bottle vowels (in the picture above)… I might have to make myself some new ones…
