4. Learn to sound one-vowel words.

When there is one vowel in a word, it usually says its short sound.

Note: Sight words cannot be pronounced entirely by phonetic analysis. Children learn to recognize sight words such as the, I, and a.

5. Learn the sounds of the long vowels. Learn to sound two-vowel words.

When there are two vowels in a word, the first vowel says its long sound, and the second vowel is silent.
