Write the long vowel words

These are the five vowels in the English language. But they represent a variety of sounds. To master these vowel sounds, first and foremost we have to learn the difference between short vowel and long vowel sounds.

We have already covered the short vowels. Today, we shall discuss long vowels which are relatively easier for children to learn compared to short vowels.

Long vowel is used to refer to the vowel sounds whose pronunciation is the same as its letter name. They are also called ‘alphabet sounds.’

They are called long because we hold them longer than short vowel sounds. But these sounds are not a longer version of short vowels. In fact, they are completely different from each other.
