Long and Short Vowels Worksheets:
Go For Os - Look for the long "O" sound, but if you hear the short sound, color it up. Either way, circle the correct form.
Looking For Long Necks - We are working with various (a) sounds here. You will circle dinosaurs based on their neck size.
What To Wear? - I started running out of analogies here. This one is short pants (shorts) versus long pants (jeans).
At the Groomers! - We put that analogy into the confines of dogs. This time focus on the snout of the pups.
Polar Bears - In here
we are just evaluating the underlined word. Make sure that students realize this because at this level, they do not always read or follow the directions.
Cat! - Time to focus on the (i) sound. You will label the sound that is given off by each word.
- We look at all the words for long vowel sounds. Color the footballs that contain those tones.
In the Library
- See if you like the library stacks on this one. You will write the correct term within each volume of the text.
Style - More use of the hair styles. Hair length comes into play here. It is either a shaggy or crew cut.
- We are only looking for long vowels here. I would suggest that you crossout terms that do not match the tone you are looking for.
- I always loved these little puzzles, as a kid. Help Wilma find a short cut to the bridge.
Build a Nest
- Look at the vowel sounds and sort each word into the proper column. Make sure to re-write, do not just draw a line.
- More sorting of sounds here. You can also use this as a cut and paste activity. That is why there are rounded corners.
Short Vowels - Read each word. Does it have a long vowel sound
or a short vowel sound? Write long or short on the line.
Word That Start
With "B" - We transition to a column checking situation. Mark the correct column for each of the terms. You will need to say the words aloud.
