The vowel sounds in Spanish are essential to correct pronunciation and, of course, to learning to read. A song about las vocales from OnlineFreeSpanish and a printable Spanish activity book from Orientación Andújar give children lots of practice with Spanish vowels.
The song La ronda de las vocales teaches children the names of the vowels, which are also the vowel sounds. It reinforces those sounds by using them in rhyming words. For example, children sing salió la A, and continue with no sé a donde va, and then fue a comprarle un regalo a su mamá.
The video of this song from OnlineFreeSpanish has the lyrics on the screen so kids can sing along. Also, there is a direct correspondence between the images and the words of the song, so they understand what they are singing. This song is an excellent way for children to learn to pronounce the vowel sounds correctly. La ronda de las vocales has also been recorded by a variety of artists like Canticuentos and Las gatitas and is available to download from iTunes.

If you are working with the vowels, Orientación Andújar has a printable activity book focused specifically on these letters. The exercises include matching letters to pictures, mazes, drawing activities, identifying lower and upper case vowels, two versions of the board game El juego de la oca, word searches and sudoku puzzles with the vowels. The activities are simple and fun and provide lots of repetition. There are 80 pages, which is a lot to print, so you will probably want to look through the workbook and print only the pages that you find most useful.
