Long Vowel Sounds Worksheets

These handy Long Vowel Sounds Worksheets are a great way to teach phonics skills to grade 1 and grade 2 students. Some long vowels sound the same and this can be confusing!  By putting the same sounds but alternate spellings on each page, children can clearly see the difference and perhaps think about why they are spelled differently.

For example, does it depend if the long vowel is in the middle of the word or at the end? Whether you are a parent, teacher, or homeschooler – these free phonics worksheets allow children to practice the sounds letters make in words.

Matching Vowel Sounds

To complete the cut and paste worksheets to work on vowel sounds you will only need to

  • print off the 5 long vowel mats, using colored paper if you’d like to brighten them up! Then laminate them or place them in plastic sleeves so the writing can be easily erased and repeated again and again in your homeschool or literacy center in your classroom.
  • Print off the small long vowel pictures. Then cut apart the pictures and store them in a small baggy.
  • Print handy 2 reference posters in either color or black and white.

Brilliant long vowel match up activity for kids!

Matching Worksheets

Choose a long vowel mat. The long vowel is written in the top right hand corner so it’s clear.

Next, children then find the 6 pictures that match that vowel. They’re easy to find since the long vowel is written in the top corner of each picture.

They then need to decide which spelling suits each word and place the pictures in the boxes on the correct side of the mat.

Using dry erase markers , write each word at the bottom of the mat. Most of the pictures only require the children to sound out the beginning sound (onset) then add the ending sound (rime).

These reference posters will help your kids self-check as they complete this free Long Vowel Match Up activity!

Some children will find this more difficult than others so they can complete the activity independently or make use of the reference posters to check their work or allow them to write even if they don’t know the correct spelling. When they’ve finished they can erase their writing with a tissue and try another mat!
