Finding Words containing Short Vowel Sounds


5 worksheets, one for each vowel sound (a, e, i, o, u). The worksheets contain a large letter showing the vowel sound and then lots of pictures, children need to circle the pictures that have the correct corresponding vowel sound in the middle of the word.


Why do you need this?

Understanding short vowel sounds is fundamental to strong literacy skills, it lays the foundation for their early literacy skills and paves the way for successful reading and spelling. The ability to recognise and differentiate between short vowel sounds helps children sound out words, enabling them to read new and unfamiliar words with accuracy.


How and when might you use this?

These five worksheets immerse students in focused short vowel recognition using visuals and interactive searching tasks. Isolating each sound, a, e, i, o and u, through pictures and circling deepens early literacy abilities.

· During small group phonics sessions

· Independent work stations or literacy centers

· Homework practice
