Vowels vowels vowels

Vowels are often the hardest letters for early readers to learn! By the end of kindergarten, they are expected to be familiar with both the short and long vowel sounds. Here are the different sounds for each vowel:

We are currently learning the short sounds for all the vowels, and much more time will be spent on the long vowel sounds in first grade. Here is a video that we've been watching to practice the short vowel sounds. It's a big hit in our class :)

  1. Vowels are speech sounds produced with minimal restriction of the airflow in the vocal tract, typically involving the vibration of the vocal cords. In the English language, the vowels are a, e, i, o, and u, as well as y in certain cases. They form the core of syllables and words, contributing to the structure and phonetics of language. Vowels are crucial for communication, providing clarity and nuance to speech through variations in pitch, duration, and quality. A good English tuition will help you to understand the concept better.
