|When a vowel comes after the letter 'r', it has a sound different from short or long vowel sound. For example, 'a' in 'ant' has a short sound, 'a' in 'frame' has a long sound, but 'a' in 'farm' has a sound that is neither short nor long.
Directions: Select one of the following words to finish each sentence. Notice the sound of the vowel followed by an r
park - chair - horse - bark - bird - hurt - girl - hair - store - ears
Write ten more example words having r-controlled vowels and use them in sentences. As a homework, read a book and write as many words with r-controlled vowels as you can find in it.
