# 1.1: Always Vowels: < a >, < e >, < i >, < o >

Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

## Always Vowels: $<\text{a}>$, <e>, $<\text{i}>$, <o>

1. Our alphabet has twenty-six letters. Some are VOWELS and some are CONSONANTS. The four letters that are always vowels are $<\text{a}>$, <e>, $<\text{i}>$, and <o>.

2. Underline the vowel letters in each word as we have done with itself and join. Don't worry about the check marks yet:

$& \text{\underline{i}ts\underline{e}lf} \surd && \text{magic} && \text{rabbit} && \text{favor} \\& \text{j\underline{oi}n} \surd && \text{bridge} && \text{asking} && \text{their} \\& \text{better} && \text{knee} && \text{village} && \text{often}$

3. Now sort the words into these four groups and check them off the list as we have done with itself and join. Be careful: Most words go into more than one group:

4. When we talk about letters, we put them inside pointed brackets, like this:

$<\text{a}> \qquad <\text{e}> \qquad <\text{i}> \qquad <\text{o}>$

5. Fill in the blanks. (Don't forget the pointed brackets!) Four letters that are always vowels are ____, ____, ____, and ____.

6. Underline each vowel letter:

$& \text{above} && \text{chance} && \text{height} && \text{behind} \\& \text{board} && \text{whose} && \text{believe} && \text{phone} \\& \text{voted} && \text{region} && \text{important} && \text{government}$

7. Now sort the words into these groups and check them off the list:

8. Four letters that are always vowels are ___________, ___________, ___________, and ___________. Did you remember the pointed brackets?
