Did you know that vowels are STICKY??

Happy 4th of July to all my American friends!
I am linking up with Cara @ The First Grade Parade for some "Throwback Thursday" fun!

It has a cute little song for vowels that goes like this:

We’re A-E-I-O-U,
We’re the vowels!
 We’re the glue,
To stick the words together,
We’re very sticky letters!

We’re very sticky,
very icky, sticky-icky letters!

While singing it, I have my students link their fingers together and pretend like they can’t get them apart (like they are so sticky, just like the vowel letters).

I also made some glue bottle vowels that stay up on the board all year long (I got the idea from my favorite teacher-friend down the hall from me). It's a great reminder for my students that the vowels are the letters that "stick the words together" (like glue)!

And guess what? I made some for you! These ones are much cuter than my original glue bottle vowels (in the picture above)... I might have to make myself some new ones...

After you download this document, all you have to do is print them on white card stock,
cut out, laminate, and put magnets on the back.



  1. These glue bottles are so cute! I have used them in my classroom for the last two years and can't wait to use them again. Thanks for re-posting them. :)
