Long Sound in Phonics

Sheetal S.
07 Apr 0 0

Long sound

Vowels a, e, i, o and u give sound to the consonants when we make words. 

Vowels have both long and short sounds.

We can define long sound as ' the name of the letter is the sound of the letter.'

Examples of long sound words are rain, pain, chain, tree, bee, pie, die, magpie, road, goat, argue, barbecue etc.

The vowel a can have a long sound by using ai, ay magic e etc. 

For instance: 'ai'

Example sn+ ai+l = snail

        r + ai+ n = rain


ee, ea for long e

For instance, 'ee' for long e sound

Sh + ee + t = sheet 


  i.e., y for long i sound

 Use of ' ie' for long i. ( Pie)

P + ie = pie


         ' oa' for long o ( coat)

C+ oa + t = coat


   ew, ue for long u sound.

      'ue' for long u ( cue)

C+ ue = cue


 One more way of remembering the sound is by the quote

' when 2 letters are walking, 1st does the talking'.
