Unit 6 summary

Short vowels e.g. e or ea? o or u?

In this unit, you have learned lots about spelling the short vowel sounds:

Think back - help with spelling rules
  • Most of the time, one letter is used to spell the short vowel sounds
  • For the short /a/ sound, use the letter a
  • For the short /e/ sound, we mostly use the letter e
  • For the short /e/ sound, we sometimes use the letters ea
  • For the short /i/ sound, we mostly use the letter i
  • For the short /i/ sound, we sometimes use the letter y. This mostly occurs if the word is Greek in origin
  • For the short /o/ sound, we mostly use the letter o
  • If the /o/ sound comes after the letter w or qu, we use the letter a
  • For the short /u/ sound, we mostly use the letter u
  • For the short /u/ sound, we sometimes use the letters ou.

The Spellzone interactive course is intended to be used online and may not be printed.

"Spellzone fits in beautifully with our Scope and Sequence of Phonological Awareness and Spelling. It also aligns perfectly with the four areas of spelling knowledge and uses the Brain, Ears, Eyes approach to learning spelling."
Thank you!
