Short Vowels Poster

My colleague Martha Brown has this poster in her classroom. We sing this each day to work on short vowel sounds. It goes like this:

"Hold an /a/a/ apple"
"Touch the /e/e/ edge"
"Feel the /i/i/ itch"
"o/o/o/o/o/o/o/" (Like an opera singer)
"You look u/u/ up" 

This is a very effective tool.
