Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

## More Practice with the VCC and VCV Patterns

1. In words that contain the VCC pattern, the vowel is short. In words that contain the VCV pattern, the first vowel is long.

2. In each of the following words find the vowel letter that is spelling the vowel sound with strong stress. Mark it with a v\begin{align*}‘v’\end{align*}. Then mark the two letters after that vowel either v\begin{align*}‘v’\end{align*} or c\begin{align*}‘c’\end{align*}:

3. Sort the sixteen words into this matrix:

Words in which the stressed vowel is . . .
Short Long
Words with the pattern VCC

tricky

issue

attacked

fifty

hundred

interest

mission

method

mister

Words with the pattern VCV

tiny

quote

evening

union

remote

decide

climate

4. In the pattern VCC the vowel is short, and in the pattern VCV the first vowel is long.

Word Scrambles

The words that are scrambled up in this puzzle all contain either the VCC or the VCV pattern. To help you, we've marked the VCC or VCV pattern in each one:
