# 1.24: Long and Short Vowel Patterns: VCV and VCC

Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

## Long and Short Vowel Patterns: VCV and VCC

1. Write the short vowel sounds. Remember the two short <u>\begin{align*}<\text{u}>\end{align*} sounds. We've given you a start:

[a] _____ _____ _____ _____ _____

2. Now write the long vowel sounds. Remember the two long <u>\begin{align*}<\text{u}>\end{align*} sounds:

[ā] _____ _____ _____ _____ _____

3. Find the first vowel letter in each of the following words and mark it <v>. Then mark the next two letters. Mark consonant letters with a <c>. and mark vowel letters with a <v>:

4. Sort the words into these two groups:

5. Now sort the words into this matrix:

6. Fill in the blanks with the words “long” or “short”: In the words in this matrix, the vowels in the pattern VCC are __________, but in the pattern VCV the first vowels are __________.

Word Find. The Find below is shaped like a VCV because each of the twenty words in it contains a long vowel in the VCV pattern:
