## Review of Long and Short Vowels

1. Read the following words and listen carefully to the vowel sounds in them:

$& \text{peace} && \text{cause} && \text{think} && \text{view} \\& \text{dance} && \text{toot} && \text{hopes} && \text{height} \\& \text{head} && \text{some} && \text{played} && \text{could}$

2. Sort the twelve words into the blanks:

Vowel Sound The word with this vowel sound in it
Short $<\text{a}>$, [a] dance
Long $<\text{a}>$, [ā]
Short <e>, [e]
Long <e>, [ē]
Short $<\text{i}>$, [i]
Long $<\text{i}>$, [ī]
Short <o>, [o]
Long <o>, [ō]
Short $<\text{u}>$, [u]
Short <oo>, $[\breve{\text{oo}}]$
Long <oo>, $[\bar{\text{oo}}]$
Long <yu>, $[\text{y} \bar{\text{oo}}]$

3. Mark the first vowel letter in each word below with a <v>. Then mark the next two letters either <v> or <c>. If you get to the end of the word before you mark all three letters, do these two things: (i) use the tic-tac-toe sign to mark the end of the word, (ii) mark the letter right in front of the VC# either <v> or <c>:

$& \text{open} && \text{slip} && \text{follow} && \text{number} \\& \text{system} && \text{zipper} && \text{bubble} && \text{cabbage} \\& \text{else} && \text{famous} && \text{happy} && \text{hobby} \\& \text{huge} && \text{lining} && \text{little} && \text{made} \\& \text{notice} && \text{music} && \text{picture} && \text{finest} \\& \text{century} && \text{simple} && \text{stripes} && \text{tuna}$

4. Now sort the words into this matrix:

5. In the patterns _________ and _________ the vowel is usually short, but in the pattern _________ the first vowel is usually long.
