What sounds do vowels make in your favorite English words? With Crayola® Color Switchers™ Markers, short and long vowels stand out—in bright colors!
The English vowels a, e, i, o, and u make different sounds in words. When these letters seem to say their own names, they are often called long vowels. You can hear long vowels in these words: game, heat, life, rope, and cute. Vowels can also make short sounds. You can hear them in hat, pen, gift, hop, and run.
Use Crayola Color Switcher Markers to write your favorite words on paper. Look at each word, one at a time. Say the word aloud. Listen for the vowel sound you hear. Is it a long or short vowel sound?
Flip the Marker and apply the special color switcher to color-code long vowels and short vowels. For example, you could color vowels that make a long sound yellow and short vowels green. If one vowel is causing another vowel to be long or short (such as a silent e), color code that vowel, too.
Read your words once more, paying close attention to the long and short sounds. Post your favorite words on a classroom wall, add them to your personal dictionary, or cut them apart to make favorite word flashcards.
