    I tell the following story to my students. I can't take credit for the story as another teacher shared it with me.

    Little "a" goes to the doctor because he has a terrible cold. He keeps saying "AAAA-choo".

    Littel "e" goes to the doctor with a terrible cough. "ehh, ehh, ehh"

    Little "i" goes to the doctor with a case of posion ivy. He has a terrible iii...itch.

    Little "o" goes to the doctor with a sore throat.
    The doctor says stick out your tongue and say "ahhhh"

    Little "u" goes to the doctor after eating too much Halloween candy. She keeps holding her tummy and saying "uhhhh"

    These works great with my students. When they forget a vowel sound, I ask they why did "a" go the the doctor?
