Long & Short Vowels Poster

Lyrics

Vowels have two sounds each
And they don’t sound the same
One is short (yeah real short)
The other is long and says its name

The short A says A  A  A  A  A  A  APPLE!
The long A says A  A  A  A  A  ACORN!

The short E says E  E  E  E  E  E  ELEPHANT!
The long E says E  E  E  E  E  EAGLE!

The short I says I  I  I  I  I  I  INSECT!
The long I says I  I  I  I  I  ISLAND!

The short O says O  O  O  O  O  O  OSTRICH!
The long O says O  O  O  O  O  OATMEAL!

The short U says U  U  U  U  U  U  UMBRELLA!
The long U says U  U  U  U  U  UNICORN!

Vowels have two sounds each
And they don’t sound the same
One is short (yeah real short)
The other is long and says its name
