Color Vowel Chart Workshop 

Saturday, May 20, 2017 

Color Vowel ® Chart - Color it Out! Workshop
Co-sponsored jointly by WATESOL and CVC

Discover the Color Vowel ® Chart and learn how teaching with a Color Vowel ® Approach powerfully intersects with English as a Second Language, pronunciation, literacy, spelling, and vocabulary development for learners of all ages. This workshop will introduce you to using the Color Vowel ® Chart in a K-12 setting. You'll have the opportunity to play Color it Out!, a revolutionary (and very popular!) card game based on the Color Vowel ® Chart that features high-frequency words and ‘sight’ words, to set the stage for meaningful repetition for improved reading and pronunciation.
