Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

Practice with Vowel and Consonant Letters

1. Here are the letters in the English alphabet:

<\text{a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l, m, n, o, p, q, r, s, t, u, v, w, x, y, z}>

2. In the alphabet above cross off the four letters that are always vowels.

3. Now cross off the three letters that are sometimes vowels and sometimes consonants.

4. So the nineteen letters that remain are always consonants. Write them in the blanks below:

5. Read these words carefully. Listen and look for the <y>'s, <\text{u}>'s, and <w>'s:

& \text{yours} && \text{wonderful} && \text{women} && \text{below} \\& \text{true} && \text{lunch} && \text{language} && \text{quiet} \\& \text{yellow} && \text{away} && \text{brown} && \text{would} \\& \text{they} && \text{holiday} && \text{year} && \text{penguin}

6. Sort the words into these groups:


Word Squares. Fit the words into the squares. Count letters very carefully. As you use each word, check it off the list. Hint: Only one word has six letters, so start with it:

Three-letter word: six

Four-letter words: fast, loud, next

Five-letter words: funny, quiet, women

Six-letter word: yellow
