Foundational Reading Lesson - Distinguish between Long A and Short A, Grade 1

  • Activity 1 / Letter A

  • Activity 2 / Long and Short Vowels

  • Activity 3 / Short /a/ or Long /a/? Worksheet

    Phonetics and its sounds can be confusing for your little ones. Sure, they might be good with regular English, and even be able to spell and read some simple words, but knowing the difference between the long and short vowels might prove a little bit trickier. If your kids are having this problem, use this simple phonetic worksheet to teach them to identify words with the short /a/ or the long /a/ sound. The task in this colourful printout is for your child to find the words that end with an ‘e’, which are the long /a/ sounds, and the words that have only one vowel such as ‘mat’, for the short sounds.

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
