They also help them work on when to add the silent e! ¬† ¬† Have you ever been there? You were certain your child knew something. Never would have even thought about teaching that concept because there was no need.

Well, that happened to us this week.¬† My first grader is a good reader for his age. Yes, we are still plugging along with phonics skills, but I’m incredibly proud of the hard-fought progress he has made.

Long and short vowels worksheets

When children first begin to read we normally introduce them to words like cap, pin, tot, and tub. These are¬†CVC words,¬†words that have a consonant, vowel (a,e,i,o,u) and then another consonant. When we see words like this, it lets us know that the¬†vowel is short. Once are kiddos master those, it is time to move unto¬†long vowels. Long vowels are the vowels that say their name. A long a will make the same sound as you say this is the letter A. There are so many rules about making a vowel long, but today we will only focus on one. The silent e! When you take a CVC word and put a e on it, an amazing thing happens. The vowel becomes long and the e silent.¬†Cap¬†is no longer a thing you place on your head, it is a¬†cape¬†on your back that makes you superman. The¬†pin¬†no longer pricks you, because it is a¬†pine¬†tree.¬†Tots¬†aren’t running around the house, but you might be carrying a¬†tote. And no more soaking in a¬†tub, you just have a¬†tube¬†of toothpaste.

The first step is to make sure that the children know the names of each picture! On the directions page, I’ve listed the name of each picture to help you out. Next, they can color in the picture. Now comes the fun part….the sounding out. The children sound out the word and color in the letters they hear. What makes this challenging is that there are short and long vowel words included. Our little ones have to sound out the first three letters, and then decide if a silent e is needed. I love this because the student must understand the silent e rule to correctly complete this. Finally, they can get in some extra¬†handwriting practice¬†by writing out the word! ¬† Even though my son has struggled with this concept, he is a little boy that loves to color. This was right up his ally and he had a blast. He even colored the squares, all while working on spelling CVCe words!!
