3. In the patterns _____________ and _____________ the vowel will usually be short, and in the patterns _____________ and _____________ the first vowel will usually be long.

Word Squares. Fit these ten words into the Squares. To help you, we have marked the VCV, VCC, VC#, and Ve# strings in each of the ten words:
