Practice with Vowel and Consonant Letters and Sounds

1. Count the letters and sounds and fill in the blanks:

How many letters? How many vowel letters? How many consonant letters? How many sounds?
penguin \begin{align*}7\end{align*} \begin{align*}2\end{align*} \begin{align*}5\end{align*} \begin{align*}7\end{align*}
village \begin{align*}7\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*} \begin{align*}4\end{align*} \begin{align*}5\end{align*}
might \begin{align*}5\end{align*} \begin{align*}1\end{align*} \begin{align*}4\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*}
those \begin{align*}5\end{align*} \begin{align*}2\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*}
would \begin{align*}5\end{align*} \begin{align*}2\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*}
write \begin{align*}5\end{align*} \begin{align*}2\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*}
knows \begin{align*}5\end{align*} \begin{align*}2\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*}
chance \begin{align*}6\end{align*} \begin{align*}2\end{align*} \begin{align*}4\end{align*} \begin{align*}4\end{align*}
always \begin{align*}6\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*} \begin{align*}5\end{align*}
height \begin{align*}6\end{align*} \begin{align*}2\end{align*} \begin{align*}4\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*}
voted \begin{align*}5\end{align*} \begin{align*}2\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*} \begin{align*}5\end{align*}
quick \begin{align*}5\end{align*} \begin{align*}1\end{align*} \begin{align*}4\end{align*} \begin{align*}4\end{align*}
enough \begin{align*}6\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*} \begin{align*}4\end{align*}
whose \begin{align*}5\end{align*} \begin{align*}2\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*}
phone \begin{align*}5\end{align*} \begin{align*}2\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*} \begin{align*}3\end{align*}

2. What do we mark with the letter <v>? Vowel letters

3. What do we mark with the letter <c>? Consonant letters

4. What four letters are always vowels? \begin{align*}\underline{<a>}\end{align*}, <e>, \begin{align*}\underline{<i>}\end{align*}, and <o>.

5. What three letters are sometimes vowels, sometimes consonants? \begin{align*}\underline{<u>}\end{align*}, <w>, and <y>

6. Which one of these is a sound — [n] or <n>? [n]

7. Which one of these is a letter — [k] or <k>? <k>

Word Find. This Word Find is shaped like a \begin{align*}C\end{align*} because it contains the following twelve words that all start with a consonant. As you find them, circle them, and check them off of the list:

\begin{align*}&\text{below} && \text{people} && \text{page} && \text{quick}\\ &\text{penguin} && \text{yellow} && \text{brothers} && \text{sisters}\\ &\text{surprise} && \text{happy} && \text{hop} && \text{gets}\end{align*}

After you find the twelve and have circled them, write them in alphabetical order in the blanks below:

  1. below
  2. brothers
  3. pets
  4. happy
  5. hop
  6. paae
  7. penauin
  8. people
  9. quick
  10. sisters
  11. surprise
  12. yellow

Teaching Notes.

1. The alphabetizing exercise in the Word Find is simply to give the students some work with their alphabetizing skills, which will be important to future dictionary work. It is also part of the general effort to get them used to keeping track of information and displaying it in an orderly way, alphabetized lists often providing surprisingly useful organizations and displays.

This Find contains a number of words that start with consonants but are not on the list, enough for a bit of competition among the early-finishers.
