6.5: Review of Vowel Letters and Patterns

Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

Review of Vowel Letters and Patterns

1. The four letters that are always vowels are _____, _____, _____, and _____.

2. The three letters that are sometimes vowels and sometimes consonants are _____, _____, and _____.

3. The other nineteen letters that are always consonants are: ______, ______, _____, _____, _____, _____, _____, _____, _____, _____, _____, _____, _____, _____, _____, _____, _____, ______, and _____.

4. Be ready to talk about these questions:

When is the letter <w> a consonant?

When is the letter <y> a consonant?

When is the letter <\text{u}> a consonant?

5. In each of the following words find the letter that is spelling the vowel sound with strong stress. Mark that letter v. Remember that in words with only one vowel sound, we assume that that vowel sound has strong stress. Then mark the next two letters after the stressed vowel, either v or c. You should find two patterns among these words: VCC and VCV. We've done the first one for you:

&\text {bandage}&& \text {major}&& \text {sense}&& \text {opposite}\\& \ \ \text {vcc}\\&\text {gate}&& \text {missile}&& \text {joking}&& \text {kept}\\\\& \text {fill}&& \text {climate}&& \text {dissolve}&& \text {misty}\\\\& \text {maniac}&& \text {gather}&& \text {tiny}&& \text {rise}\\\\& \text {human}&& \text {lady}&& \text {victim}&& \text {twice}

Sort the words into these two groups:

Word Changles. Changles combine Word Changes with Word Scrambles. Follow the directions carefully. Write the words you make in the column on the right. The shaded boxes will contain words that you worked with in Item 5 of this lesson.
