Oh, Those Tricky Vowels
Vowels, vowels, vowels. Vowels can be so tricky to learn. As a first grade teacher I would love to be able to change the spelling of many words to make them fit more standard rules and patterns. Alas, I do not have that kind of power in this world. So, we are working on learning all we can about those tricky vowels. Earlier in the year we studied short vowel sounds. We recently started looking at various ways to spell long vowel sounds. Last week we looked at a few ways to spell the long "a" sound and today we looked at ways to spell the long "e" sound (see our charts below for examples). We will continue to work our way through all of the vowels and notice just how many different ways you can spell one sound. Tricky, tricky, but we can do hard things.
