Video Summary: Long Vowel sounds are when Vowels make the sound of their Letter Names.
Long Vowel sounds are when Vowels make the sound of their Letter Names.
When one sees the pattern of Vowel then Consonant then Vowel, the grammatical rule for that arrangement is that the first Vowel is a Long Vowel and that Vowel makes the sound of its Letter Name, the Consonant makes its usual sound, and the second Vowel is silent.
An example of this letter pattern with Long Vowel A is the word “Ate.” The A makes the sound of its Letter Name “A,” the T makes the sound “t,” and the E does not make any sound.
This video teaches the grammatical rule for Vowel Consonant Vowel with a song: “Vowel Consonant Vowel. Vowel Consonant Vowel. The first vowel says its name the second vowel says nothing.”
To practice the Long Vowel A, Vowel Consonant Vowel, grammatical rule there are stories for your child to read in the Practice Reading Book 2 that correlate with the same Long Vowel A word families addressed in the video (Practice Reading Book 2 Pages: 1-11).
For additional practice there are printable Long Vowel Word Family Flashcards. With these Flashcards the child can read the various Long Vowel Word Families and add Consonants to the words families to practice blending sounds to make Long Vowel Words (Long Vowel Flashcards).
