I is for igloo: why short vowel sounds should be taught first

Our free letter I worksheets feature igloo as our letter word. It uses the short /i/ sound versus the long Ī sound. And while I would have loved to use the word ice cream, there’s a sound reason why I didn’t. It’s because teaching short vowel sounds first is good practice. Let me explain.

Letter I worksheets for kids

Even though short vowel sounds can be confusing for children to pick up on at first over long vowel sounds, they should be taught first. Here’s why: short vowel sounds are more common than long vowel sounds in the English language so they appear more often in texts.

As kids start reading, they will come across more short vowel words like VC words (vowel-consonant): at in, up, and CVC words (consonant-vowel-consonant): red, hip, cat, sun, mop. On top of that, short vowel words are easier to spell because they have more consistent sounds than other words. And the short-vowel rule is easy to learn.

Think of all the fun your family will have playing Banagrams when your kid begins to read and write VC and CVC words! New game for Friday family fun night.
