Grade 1  Quiz  Distinguishing Long and Short Vowel Sounds in Spoken Single-Syllable Words РRF.1.2.A

The standard CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RF.1.2.A requires first graders to differentiate between long and short vowel sounds in spoken single-syllable words. This skill is crucial for the development of phonemic awareness and phonics knowledge, which are foundational for successful reading. Understanding the difference between long vowels (where vowels say their name, as in “make”) and short vowels (as in “hat”) helps students decode and spell words correctly.
