Vowel teams about town

From creeks to clouds and houses to schools, Unit I students in Joan Claybourn’s class built a town filled with items with vowel teams in their names. Vowel teams are two or more consecutive letters that represent one long vowel sound. The students learned about vowel teams through building, reading, and writing words with vowel teams in them. To build their town, they brainstormed items they could find on a farm, in a neighborhood, in a downtown, and at a beach that all had vowel teams. They then put on their work vests and began constructing their town.
