Vowel Poem from Ordinary Parents Guide
Posted 08 July 2010 - 06:31 PM
I think I remember the beginning;
A is the first sound we will say
[a] is the ??? sound of A
Could someone provide me with the the poem please? I went back to the library today with the intention of copying it and of course the book was checked out.

/a/ is the short vowel sound of a.
E is the next vowel, don't you see?
/e/ is the short vowel sound of e.
I is the third vowel that goes by.
/i/ is the short vowel sound of i.
O is the fourth vowel that I know.
/o/ is the short vowel sound of o.
U is the fifth vowel; that is true.
/u/ is the short vowel sound of u.
My kid loved this poem. (I couldn't type the little smiley face over the vowel sound, but they're there for the short sound.)

Its major weakness is that the letter names rather than the phonemes are incorporated into the rhymes, so there's no auditory jarring when the child makes says the wrong phoneme.
