How Do You Spell [o¯]?

1. You can hear [o¯] in the middle of the word vote. Underline the letters that spell [o¯] in the following words.

n\underline{o}blesupp\underline{o}seem\underline{o}tionexpl\underline{o}recomm\underline{o}tionexp\underline{o}se\underline{o}mitf\underline{o}e\underline{o}asisp\underline{o}emsvolcan\underline{o}her\underline{o}icp\underline{o}etrypneum\underline{o}niasm\underline{o}kingteleph\underline{o}neph\underline{o}t\underline{o}w\underline{o}venv\underline{o}tersr\underline{o}tateradi\underline{o}s\underline{o}daw\underline{o}en\underline{o}els\underline{o}lar\underline{o}missionm\underline{o}tionless\underline{o}gle\underline{o}verpassvide\underline{o}

One way of spelling [o¯] is <o>.

2. You have worked with five different patterns that mark long vowels: VCV, VCle, V#, Ve#, and V.V. Sort the words above into the following five groups:

Words with [
VCV
Words with [
VCle V# Ve# V.V

3. The long vowel sound [o¯] is usually spelled <o> in the pattern VCV, but it is also spelled <o> in the patterns VCle, V#, Ve#, and V.V.

Teaching Notes.

Items 1 and 2. Be sure the students underline both <o>’s in photo and get photo copied into both groups to which it belongs.

Some dictionaries show an alternate pronunciation of ogle with a short <o> [o] rather than a long <o> [o¯], but the pronunciation with [o¯] is the more common and it fits the VCle pattern, so it is the pronunciation assumed here.
