Basic Speller - Lesson 17 - Long and Short <{a}> and <e>


Lesson Seventeen

Long and Short <\text{a}> and <e>

1. Say at and ate a few times. The sound the <\text{a}> spells in at is called short <\text{a}>. The sound the <\text{a}> spells in ate is called long <\text{a}>.

2. Listen carefully for the short <\text{a}>'s and long <\text{a}>'s in these words and sort the words into the two groups below:

& \text{magic} && \text{happy} && \text{came} && \text{someday} \\ & \text{favor} && \text{laugh} && \text{scratch} && \text{than} \\ & \text{name} && \text{place} && \text{same} && \text{last} \\ & \text{chance} && \text{apple} && \text{station} &&   \text{take}

3. Say bet and beet a few times. The sound the <e> spells in bet is short <e>. The sound the <ee> spells in beet is long <e>. Listen for the short <e>'s and long <e>'s in the following words. Then sort them into the two groups:

& \text{queen} && \text{best} && \text{question} && \text{believe} \\ & \text{help} && \text{yellow} && \text{these} && \text{then} \\ & \text{get} && \text{she} && \text{seat} &&  \text{leave} \\ & \text{three} && \text{teacher} && \text{rent} &&   \text{seven}

Word Find. The Find below is shaped like the word LONG because all thirty words in it contain a long <\text{a}> or a long <e>:

& \text{always} && \text{late} && \text{same} \\ & \text{ate} && \text{leave} && \text{seat} \\ & \text{be} && \text{may} && \text{she} \\ & \text{between} && \text{meat} && \text{sheep} \\ & \text{came} && \text{name} && \text{sleep} \\ & \text{day} && \text{need} && \text{take} \\ & \text{eat} && \text{page} && \text{theme} \\ & \text{feet} && \text{peace} && \text{these} \\ & \text{gave} && \text{place} && \text{three} \\ & \text{he} && \text{queen} && \text{today}
