The short and long vowels are a topic that your kids must learn in order to become phonetics masters. Learning to tell the difference properly might be a little difficult for them, though. So, it is up to you to teach them some of the easiest ways to spot the long and the short vowels. Look through the worksheet with your little ones. Help them say the words for each object on the left side. Then, ask them to check the box for the vowel sound that they hear.
