When teaching the short vowels have your child divide the chalkboard into four Quarters. Tell her or him that you are going to say some words and that the 'aaa' sound (in this example we will use the short 'a') may be at the beginning or in the middle of the word. Your child then repeats the word after you. If she or he says 'aaa' then they should print 'a' -- if they don't say 'aaa' then they should leave their Quarter empty.
