Professional Illustrations of Short Vowels

Amanda Earnest, a graphic artist with the Learning Resources Center at Auburn University, helped the Reading Genie create new illustrations of phonemes featuring their graphemes, or principal spellings. These illustrations display a real-world analogy sound to help students remember short-vowel phonemes.  The grapheme is embedded in the illustration.
