Long and Short Vowel Sounds

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet
This Long and Short Vowel Sounds worksheet also includes:

Long and short vowels have never been quite so colorful! Learners use an intricate key to color a grid of words based on the vowel sound they hear. Red is the long a sound, light blue is the short u sound, etc. By the time they've colored in all 81 squares, they will have created a beautiful color pattern tile (and had lots of practice!). Words are two to five letters long.
