Vowel sounds and functions

This visual, hands-on method of teaching vowel sounds and functions is fun and memorable for beginning readers and writers.

Teaching Point: Vowels are Super Hero Letters that possess two special powers: They get to make two sounds and they hold words together.

1.Sounds:
Not all words have two vowels together, or a magic “e” clue to signal the long vowel sound. Therefore, if a child understands that a vowel can sometimes say its name, then they can replace the short/regular sound and move on quickly when decoding words.

“When two vowels play together, the first one says its name, and the second plays the quiet game”-this can be practiced with manipulatives, put two side by side and have the child tell you the sound they would hear from them as partners.

2.Functions:
ALL words include at least one vowel. Most beginning reader words, and syllables, have a vowel as the second or middle sound. Beginning writers often times forget the vowels when writing. For example c-a-t becomes c-t. When a child understands that the word they are writing needs the strength of the vowel to “hold” it together, they learn to listen for it when stretching out the sounds of a word.

This set includes both color and black and white copies
• Vowel Manipulatives
• Vowel Books-Long and short vowel practice
• Vowel Word Building cards
• Vowel Answer cards-These can be used for students to hold up, and show whether they hear long or short vowel sounds when shown flash cards.
