I will be discussing long vowel i -igh sound in this post.
We often come across words like high, sigh, might, light, flight, bright, delight, tonight, thigh, fright. What common in these words? It’s the long vowel sound ‘igh.’ ‘igh’ can also be called a trigraph.
What is a long vowel?
A 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.
Hear the sound of i in the word sit. It is the short i sound. Now, hear it in the word sight. It is the long i sound.
Let’s discuss the phonics sound igh worksheets.
Read the words and highlight the igh sound in the words list. Highlighting the sound helps a child remember and understand that three letters come together to make the long vowel i sound.
In the above long vowel worksheet, read the words. Cut the picture tiles and paste the correct word in the block. Kids really enjoy these cut and paste worksheets and it is a great way to practice long vowel sounds.
In the next long vowel i worksheet, add ‘igh’ in the space and read the words. This worksheet will help the child write the ‘igh’ sound which can be confusing and also read igh words.
Read the long vowel i words in the word bank. Identify the pictures and write the correct words in the blocks.
You can also use the above long vowel words list for reading words. These can also be used to display on the wall. Click on the above image to download the 12 long vowel word list.
Read these simple long vowel sentences. There are two options of which one can be used to complete the sentence. Use the correct word to complete the sentence.
The last long vowel worksheet is a pictures puzzle worksheet. Cut the squares and you will have the six puzzles. Now cut along the dotted lines and have the child make the picture and read the word. Paste it in the notebook and write a sentence using the word. Colour the picture.
