When we are learning basic language skills it is critical to understand how paired letter, particularly vowels, produce new sounds when paired together. Variant vowels are groups of letters that produce the same vowel sound. Students don’t need to know the exact label of these letter pairs, but just understand that the end result of the sound is the same. There are tremendous series of letter pairs that produce a long "a" sound, that is an example of a variant vowel. These worksheets will help students understand how to recognize and use variant vowels.
