Long Vowel I Vowel Vowel

Long Vowel sounds are when Vowels make the sound of their Letter Names.

Instructions

Long Vowel sounds are when Vowels make the sound of their Letter Names.

When one sees the pattern of two Vowels next to each other, 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 and the second Vowel is silent.

An example of this letter pattern with Long Vowel I is the word “Pie.” The Consonant P makes its typical sound, the I makes the sound of its Letter Name, “I,” and the E does not make any sound.
This video teaches the grammatical rule for two Vowels next to each other with a song: “Consonant Vowel Vowel. Consonant Vowel Vowel. The fist vowel says its name the second vowel says nothing.”

To practice the Long Vowel I, Consonant Vowel Vowel, grammatical rule there are stories for your child to read in the Practice Reading Book 2 that correlate with the same Long Vowel I Word Families addressed in the video (Practice Reading Book 2 Pages: 40-44).

For additional practice there are printable Long Vowel Word Family Flashcards. With these Flashcards your child can read the various Long Vowel Word Families and add Consonants to the Word Families to practice blending sounds to make Long Vowel Words (Long Vowel Flashcards).
