Short Vowels

Introduction Strategies

repeat the sound the short e makes. Go around the room asking for examples of words with the short e sound in it. Invite students to listen to their classmates’ suggestions, and agree or disagree with whether the suggested words are correct. Pocket Chart Phonics — Short Vowels © Learning Resources, Inc.

2. Naming pictures with the sound Place a vowel card (example a) at the top of the pocket chart. Ask students, “Does anyone know what letter this is? It is the letter a. We call this letter a vowel. Although we say the letter’s name as “ay,” and we hear it in words like acorn and gate, it also makes another sound. A also says ‘aaa,’ like in the words apple or cat. We call this the short a sound. Can you think of any other words that have the short a sound?” To reiterate and self-check, ask children to say the short a sound first, then their word. Pass out the a picture cards with others from the book, and ask volunteers to place pictures that have the short a sound in the pocket chart.

3. Identifying each unique sound - Review Challenge students to think of as many words as possible that contain each of the short vowel sounds. Have them write them down, in columns by vowel sound, on a sheet of paper. Invite each child to say a word aloud, allowing others to guess the short vowel sound they hear. Use this as an opportunity to separate other vowel sounds that children may confuse with the short vowel sounds. Reiterate the short vowel sound each time one is said aloud. As an extension activity, have students choose two words and write them on strips of paper. Place the five vowel cards across the top of the pocket chart. Place the words in random order on the pocket chart, under the headings of each vowel. Challenge students to come up and rearrange the words correctly to appear under the vowel that they hear in the word.
