SIPPS READING SUPPORT Short vowels vs. Long vowels How do we tell the difference?
Vowel identification : Identify the vowels in each set! • a, h, o, m, x, c, i, u • p, o, z, e, q, s, d, i, g • u, h, a, m, o, u, w, e
Short Vowels • The term short vowel is used to refer to the sounds that most often correspond to the letters 'a, ' 'e, ' 'i, ' 'o, ' and 'u' when the vowel occurs individually between consonants. The sound is cut off or “short”.
Example of short vowel CVC words. • Short a: cab, dab, gab, jab, lab • Short e: bet, get, jet, let, met • Short i: dip, hip, lip, nip, rip • Short o: bog, cog, dog, fog • Short u: pup, cup, bus *CVC stands for consonant vowel consonant*
Long Vowels • 'Long vowel' is the term used to refer to vowel sounds whose pronunciation is the same as its letter name. The five vowels of the English spelling system ('a', 'e, ' 'i, ' 'o, ' and 'u') each have a corresponding long vowel sound. Long vowels force you to say the letter name! The sound won’t be cut off or shortened. The way the letter is pronounced is the sound it will make!
Examples of Long vowel words • Long a: Bake, Cake • Long e: See, beam, tree • Long i: Pine, fine, right • Long o: Toe, road, loan • Long u: Rude, que, Duke
