Long and Short Vowel Posters

I went to  the teacher supply store today to pick up a few posters like this one.

There weren’t any floating my boat, so I decided…

 

I could make my own.

I know there are tons of these guys floating around but I wanted to add  some spark to my set this year. So I made these too.

Click on the picture below and help yourself to your own set of short and long vowel posters and the reading strategies cards. But only if you want to.

I printed my set of short and long vowels on the poster setting (4 sheets) on my printer.

I officially have three weeks and three days until my new set of first graders dances, prances, stumbles, skates, rollerblades, wind surfs….you get the picture…through my classroom.

I can’t believe I have almost 1,000 followers! I have some wonderful blogging friends Smile

  3. Thank you so much!!!! I will definitely use these. I think that the one page version would be great for the kids to have in their vocabulary or writing folders (short and long vowels).

    How did you get the nice border on your chunky monkey,etc. ones?

  8. Thanks! What font did you use for the words? It looks similar to wish you were taller, but I like how it doesn't mix capital and lowercase!
    I'm a super-new blogger (like 2 days new) and I'm loving all the fun tips!

  14. I love how concise these are. We got our walls painted this summer and I know they won't want my cards hung up everywhere. Thanks!

  15. Love these! Thank you so much for all of the wonderful things you share. I was also wondering about the borders you used on the Beanie Baby posters. I need to change one of them since I am using a leopard for "Spot the clues in the picture" instead of the eagle.

  16. Thanks everybody for the lovely words :)
    I used the DJ Inkers border from KiddlyWinks CD. The fonts on the posters are a combo of Smiley Monster, Wish I were Taller and Andrea Karime(I used Andrea Karime for the title in the short vowels poster).

  26. I have the Kidillywinks CD but I can't figure out how to change the color of the border like you did! If it's not too much trouble, could you explain how you do that?

    I copied the border and pasted it into Paint then selected the paint bucket, picked my colors and clicked.

  29. Hi! I LOVE your reading strategies posters because they are so stinkin' precious! Recently, I have made some similar, but I am now changing my other strategies (like Tryin' Lion) to match yours. However, I was wondering if you would be willing to share what word art settings you choose for the titles like "Chunky Monkey" and "Stretchy Snake"? Thanks a million! :)

  30. Hey Kris!
    I didn't use word art..I created the posters in Power Point and used the Wish I Were Taller font for the titles.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Okay thank you! Your titles look better than mine do. I love the shading and how the title looks like it is "jumping" off the page. Just curious if you used any special settings on the colors/font. Thanks so much for the response! :)

  32. Kris:
    I used the text shadow tool in Power Point...it should be on the Home tab on the toolbar. I think Word has a show text tool also.

  42. Love the posters and would like to use them for desk plates. I pasted the thumbnail image but it is blurry. Can I get a doc that has 6 pages of same image-one of the long vowels and one of the short- or a doc that has same image 6 or 9 times on the same page?

  46. I love your posters! I'm a homeschool mom and this would help me so much! But for some reason, I am unable to print them. I get weird errors in the browser. Any chance you'd be able to email them to me? Thanks
