Assess student understanding of common spelling patterns for vowel sounds with this quick sorting exercise. Young readers will read words and then write them out in the appropriate column for long or short vowel sounds.
By second grade, children likely understand that vowels can have different sounds: short or long vowel sounds. Reinforce your children’s understanding of letter-sound relationships with these worksheets that feature short vowels. Second graders sort short vowels from long vowels, identify words that contain short vowel sounds, brainstorm lists of words that have short vowel sounds, and more.
