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.
How well can your child read words? What about being able to see a picture of an object and correctly identifying them? In this worksheet, your child will have to do that, and also learn more about the long vowel sounds. In each of the three rows, there are four objects. First, ask your child to say the names of the objects aloud. Then, help them check the boxes under the long vowel sounds.
