In this post, I will be sharing missing vowel worksheets that will help learners listen to short vowel sounds in simple CVC words.
These worksheets aren’t as simple as they seem to be. Children learn to blend sounds and read the word. In these worksheets, children will learn to segment the sounds. It helps build phonemic awareness.
To help our beginners, I have included a chart above each worksheet that will help them recollect vowel sounds.
a – apple
e – egg
i – igloo
o – octopus
u – umbrella
Anytime they feel confused among vowel sounds which can be quite often, they can refer to the chart above.
These worksheets will also help children write vowel sounds and trace consonant sounds.
There are 60 pictures in all so children will get to practice 60 CVC words and their missing short vowel!
I have also prepared a few board games to practice reading CVC words or three-letter words. Children will love this activity and will be more than willing to read words! This game is apt for kindergarteners once they have learned to blend CVC words.
There will be times when children will be unable to identify the correct picture but since the beginning and ending sound is given, it will not be an issue.
Children tend to get confused between the short vowel ‘a’ and ‘e’ sound. You can download the above pack to practice discriminating between the a and e sound.
In case, your child is not comfortable holding the pencil, you can use letter tiles or beads for vowels a e i o u. Children can place the vowel tile or bead instead of writing the vowel.
This pack is free for subscribers to download.
