Vowel Sounds Worksheets - Medial Sounds Phonemic Awareness Worksheets

Regular price $10.00

Your child can handle consonant sounds like /t/ and /m/, but those pesky vowels can be so tricky! These worksheets give your child a deep dove into the 18 vowel sounds.
Vowel sounds are the trickiest part of reading words. These middle sounds worksheets help your students become really successful with phonemic awareness skills.

These middle sounds worksheets are sorted by vowel sounds. Does your child need practice with short a?
Just use the table of contents to find those worksheets, and then click print!

Working on the difference between short and long oo (like good and food)? There are a ton of worksheets for that!

Important Note: phonemic awareness is meant to be done out loud. Also, many phonics clip art pictures will be new vocabulary words for your child. I do not recommend this as independent work. Instead, use the scripts I provide and the picture keys to teach your child.
