A Crazy Day at the Critter Cafe: Word Burgers

A Crazy Day at the Critter Caféis a cute rhyming story about some animals who come into a restaurant and go wild.

You could also sort for vowel patterns.  This example is sorted according to ee & ea (long e patterns) and short e.  After sorting, have them read each word aloud:

Pin It!
