Grade 1 is learning about short vowel sounds this term – a, e, i, o, and u. Some students are very capable at distinguishing the sounds of these letters, but others need a bit more practice. Luckily, there are some resources on YouTube that will help your child practice these sounds at home.
First is the vowel bat. The video repeats the vowel sounds to the classic tune of the Batman theme song. It’s an easy sing-along for the students.
Another video goes though the vowel sounds at different speeds, as well as some words that begin with each sound.
