Children's: Short and Long Vowels

Short and Long Vowels

This children's educational video teaches kids about the long and short vowel sounds in the English language and how they generated and pronounced. The purpose of this video is to help children learn correct pronunciation by teaching them the long and short vowel sounds and when they are used.

In tthe video, we demonstrate each of the five short and long vowel sounds that are generated by the letters a, e, i, o, and u. We give many examples of words that contain each of them.
