Mastering vowel sounds is an important step on the path to reading! Use this one-on-one assessment to gauge your first graders' knowledge of words that have a long E sound by having them read these sight words aloud.
Different spellings can sometimes make the same sound, such as the "au" and "aw" vowel teams. Can your second graders differentiate between words with and without the “aw” sound? Find out with this word sorting activity!
Vowels change the way they sound depending on where they are in a word. Students sometimes need support identifying the sounds vowels can make. These engaging worksheets ask students to think about vowels in open and closed syllables. Children will separate words into their different parts and identify the vowels in open and closed syllables.
