Review of Long and Short Vowel Patterns

1. In each of the following words one of the vowels is marked ‘v’. You are to mark the two letters after that vowel either ‘v’ or ‘c’. If you get to the end of the word before you have marked two more letters, use the tic-tac-toe sign to mark the end of the word. Any cases of vv# should be marked Ve#, as we have done with agree. In words that end VC#, mark the letter in front of the ‘v’ either ‘v’ or ‘c’:

& \text{agree} && \text{subdue} && \text{extreme} && \text{forgot} && \text{stubborn} \\& \quad \text{v}e\# && \qquad \ \text{v}e\# && \quad \ \text{vcv} && \ \quad \text{cvc}\# && \quad \text{vcc}\\\\& \text{chapter} && \text{broken} && \text{hug} && \text{equip} && \text{canoe}\\& \quad \text{vcc} && \quad \text{vcv} && \ \text{cvc}\# && \quad \text{cvc}\# && \quad \ \text{v}e\#\\\\& \text{dispute} && \text{race} && \text{combat} && \text{whisper} && \text{aspirin}\\& \qquad \text{vcv} && \ \text{vcv} && \quad \ \ \ \text{cvc}\# && \quad \text{vcc} && \quad \text{vcc}\\\\& \text{student} && \text{vacation} && \text{tiptoe} && \text{permit} && \text{symptom}\\& \quad \ \text{vcv} && \quad \ \text{vcv} &&  \ \quad \text{v}e\# &&  \ \quad \text{cvc}\# && \ \text{vcc}

2. Now sort the words into this matrix. This matrix has eight squares rather than the regular four, but don't let that bother you. It works just like the smaller ones:

Words with ...
VCC: CVC# VCV: Ve#:
Words with short first vowels in the pattern:

chapter

whisper

stubborn

aspirin

symptom

hug

combat

forgot

equip

permit

Words with long first vowels in the pattern:

dispute

student

broken

race

vacation

extreme

agree

subdue

tiptoe

canoe

3. In the patterns VCC and CVC# the vowel will usually be short, and in the patterns VCV and Ve# 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:

& \text{agree} && \text{dispute} && \text{correct} && \text{success} && \text{submit}\\& \text{assistant} && \text{evening} && \text{striking} && \text{continue} && \text{die}
