I borrowed the book from the Library before deciding that it wasn't something I needed to purchase for my son's reading. He is already too far ahead and we are using AAS which will cover Phonics review. But There is a poem in the beginning about vowels I would like my 4 y/o to memorize.

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.

Thanks

A is the first vowel we will say.
/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.)

Enjoy.

We found the OPGTTR poem difficult to remember, although we love the book on the whole. My kids memorized the vowel names and sounds to "B-I-N-G-O" song. They sang "A-E-I-O-U...and those are the five vowel names" and then we sang "/a/-/e/-/i/-/o/-/u/...and those are the short vowel sounds".

:iagree: 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.
