Children practice short and long vowel sounds as they put the objects into their proper tubs... plus, they can tell stories about the miniatures, sort them and play with them. The separate tubs for long and short vowels minimize frustration by enabling children to focus on one vowel sound at a time. Set includes 10 tubs with lids, sticker labels, 61 miniatures and a teacher guide. Contains some Americanisms and words. .
