Long Vowel Literacy Centers, Reader's Theater, and Worksheets

I just received a group of new students to work with for the last few months of school.  We have been having a blast.  With this game, students practice their long vowel sounds by sorting cereal pieces into the correct cereal boxes.

They also review using Long Vowel Sound Reader's Theater which is also in this bundle.  Their scripts have controlled language and give them constant review with specific long vowel sounds and word patterns.
