About Vowels Song

The Vowels in the English written language are: A, E, I, O, and U. All other letters are called Consonants.

Your child needs to memorize the Long Vowel Sounds (Vowel Names) as well as the Short Vowel sounds. Short Vowel Sounds are the sounds that Vowels make when the Vowels do not make the sound of their Letter Names.

An example of the Short Vowel A sound is the sound “a” in the word “Cap.” An example of the Short Vowel E sound is the sound “e” in the word “egg.” An example of a Short Vowel I sound is the sound “i” in the word “Pig.” An example of a Short Vowel O sound is the sound “o” in the word “Dog.” An example of a Short Vowel U sound is the sound “u” in the word “Mug.”

An example of the Long Vowel A sound is the sound “A” in the word “Ape.” An example of the Long Vowel E sound is the sound “E” in the word “Eat.” An example of the Long Vowel I sound is the sound “I” in the word “Kite.” An example of the Long Vowel O sound is the sound “O” in the word “Note.” An example of the Long Vowel U sound is the sound “U” in the word “Use.”

For practice with Short Vowel and Long Vowel sounds use the Vowel Flashcards. Have your child say the Long Vowel Sound (the Name of the Letter) and the Short Vowel Sound for each Upper and Lowercase Vowel (Vowel Flashcards).
