Sound that vowel – free teaching resource

How important is correct pronunciation? Saying a word correctly should help with spelling. When else is correct pronunciation necessary?

There is an advert on the television at the moment that shows people asking their phone questions and getting a sensible answer. How important is it to pronounce words correctly for these gadgets to work? I have trouble getting passed the first question on a voice activated call centre and that is normally just a yes or no choice!

This worksheet explores words with short vowels such as ‘bin’ and ‘ten’ and writing sentences using them. It is drawn from How to Dazzle at Spelling, a structured resource for teaching Key Stage 3 (KS3) pupils with special educational needs to understand and commit sounds, letter strings and high frequency words to memory. The rules of spelling are often difficult for pupils to assimilate because there are so many exceptions. Therefore rules require reinforcement many times before they are understood. The sheets can also be used with Key Stage 2 pupils.
