Long Vowel Sounds

FREE

8 sets of word cards to familiarize your students with different ways to spell words with long A, E, I, O and U sounds.

Clear

Description

The Long Vowel Sounds word sets include spellings with final e as well as vowel digraphs.

Words with long A, I, and O that use the final e pattern (as in: make, bite, rope) appear in their own card sets.

Examples of long vowel sounds spelled with vowel digraphs (ay, ai, ee, ea, ie, igh, oa and ow) appear in separate sets of cards.

I find the long u sound the most confusing. Remember, long vowels say their name. So long u says “you” not “oo” as in “blue”. You’ll find word cards with the short and long “oo” sounds in the More Vowel Sounds post.

Sets are colour coded by border colour. If a vowel sound has two sets, both have the same colour border.
