"When there is one vowel in a word, it is usually short."

"When there are two vowels in a word, the first one says it name and the second one is silent."


When we did Abeka Phonics, I made my dd memorize these two rules. She had short/long confusion prior to this, but the rules pretty much cleared that up.

She is pretty good at reading. Reading almost grade level 8. She is in the GT program in school.

But somehow I feel that vowel concept is still not clear to her.

Thank you all. I will read that blog post. Is there any curriculum /book out there for Language art?


:confused: If she is reading on an 8th grade level, she obviously knows how to pronounce vowels. Why are you concerned?
