What are examples of Short and Long Vowels?
For some parents, it’s been a LONG time since they had to think about what short and long vowels are! I’m here to help you figure out which is which so you can help your child become a more successful reader.
Short vowels are vowels that do NOT sound like their name. They are more soft and relaxed vowels. Some examples for each vowel would be:

I: igloo, iguana, mitt, flip, Izzy, ink, pin, fish, quince
O: octopus, octagon, bot, plop, rot, top, cot, flop
U: run, bug, cub, cute, prune, mute, flute, pup
Long Vowels sound like their name. Often times they sound more strong and exaggerated. Some examples of long vowels would be:
