Because of the multiple rules associated with a vowel "saying its name" (vowel pairs, silent e), long vowels are typically taught after short vowel sounds are mastered. By practicing, understanding, hearing, and speaking vowel sounds properly, young readers not only work on their reading skills, but also build spelling, comprehension, and speech skills, too.

Help your child master the special rules that come along with long vowel sounds, and make it fun with this great set of worksheets.
