Long A and Short A Resources

First, second and third graders grow their foundational speech and reading proficiency skills. A basic element of deciphering how a word is pronounced is knowing the difference between the long A and short A sounds. The Resource Library provides lessons directed at mastering long and short As that would make Fonzie proud.

Subtle Sounds: Short and Long A Resources

Identifying vowel sounds is a skill elementary school students must learn in order to read. That means knowing the difference between long A and short A sounds. The Learning Library arms educators and parents with a variety of teacher-created tools such as worksheets, guided lessons, interactive stories and much more, that teach students the subtle differences of the important vowel.

Printable worksheets with playful illustrations challenge young learners to identify the long and short As in words such as “acorn” or “ladybug.” Word searches with long and short A words turn an educational lesson into a game. Other worksheets incorporate rhyming so students can compare sound similarities among words.

Various engaging games with whimsical illustrations incorporate repetition to help students commit A sounds to memory. Short A Opera with a belting (not melting) ice cream cone encourages kids to sing out short A sounds. A photo hunt game will have players spot items pronounced with specific sounds.

These are just a few of the tools found in the Learning Library that will tune kids’ phonics ears so they can read with excitement and ease.
