    short vowel sounds and consonant sounds. In order to support Kamil needs in the area of decoding short vowel sound, several activities may be implemented. Kamil may benefit from teaching hand motion for each vowel, as illustrated below, and practice repeating first, short vowel sounds, and then, words containing a short vowel. https://child1st.com/blogs/resources/113580871-how-to-teach-vowel-sounds-so-kids-will-remember Another strategy is called Missing Vowel.
