Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

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:
