Review of Vowel and Consonant Patterns

1. In each of the following words find the vowel letter marked with a ‘\text{v}’. Then mark the next two letters - ‘\text{v}’ for a vowel, ‘\text{c}’ for a consonant. If you come to the end of the word before you have marked all three letters, use the tic-tac-toe sign (#) to mark the end of the word:

& \text{confession} && \text{accommodate} && \text{judgement} && \text{illuminate} \\& \quad \ \ \text{vcc} && \qquad \qquad  \ \ \text{v} && \ \ \text{v} && \quad \text{v} \\& \text{ecstasy} && \text{disagree} && \text{courageous} && \text{excelling} \\& \text{v} && \qquad  \ \ \text{v} && \quad \ \  \text{v} && \quad \text{v} \\& \text{legal} && \text{mystical} && \text{republican} && \text{calculator} \\& \ \ \text{v} && \quad \text{v} && \quad \ \text{v} && \quad \quad \ \ \text{v} \\& \text{consistent} && \text{collapsing} && \text{symbol} && \text{equip} \\& \quad \ \ \text{v} && \quad \ \ \text{v} && \ \ \text{v} && \quad \ \ \text{v} \\& \text{rhythmic} && \text{zodiac} && \text{acquired} && \text{acquiesce} \\& \quad \text{v} && \ \ \text{v} && \quad \ \ \text{v} && \qquad \text{v} \\& \text{tissue} && \text{canoe} && \text{picnic} && \text{maniac} \\& \text{v} && \quad \ \text{v} && \quad \ \ \text{v} && \quad \ \ \ \text{v}

In the words with the pattern vv# the second vowel is always the same letter. What letter is it? ___. For that reason we will call this the Ve# pattern.

2. Now sort the twenty-four words into the following matrix:

3. A vowel sound will usually be short if it is the first vowel in the patterns ________ or ________. A vowel sound will usually be long if it is the first vowel in the patterns ________ or ________.

4. Each of the following words contains two vowel letters side by side. Sometimes the two work together to spell a single vowel sound - as in play and gauze. Sometimes they spell two separate vowel sounds - as in diet and fluid.

Put a ‘1’ after words in which the two vowel letters spell a single sound and a ‘2’ after those in which they spell two separate sounds.

5. Sort the twenty words into these two groups:

6. In those words in which the two vowel letters spell two separate vowel sounds, is the first vowel sound long or is it short? ________

7. V.V. Rule. When two vowel sounds are side by side and spell two separate sounds, the first letter will spell a ________ vowel sound.

The period in ‘V.V’ is to remind us that there are two separate vowel sounds there.
