Short Vowel Solo

  This a solo singer, vowels make their short sound when there are no other vowels closer than two letters away.

To the tune of "Pop goes the Weasel"

All the way to the end of the word


He looked. for another vowel


Two letters were there

They blocked his view.


Short Sound! he sang Solo

  EE

I Always Sound The Same

To the tune of I've been working on the railroad

I've been say-ing the EEEE sound
I always sound the same

I've been say-ing the EEEE sound
and that's just like my name.

Double e is what I am calling
It's also what I'm called.

Anywhere I  land in spell-ing
/EEE/'s my constant ring

Give Yourself a Break Learning Ch

To the tune of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

The ‘Ch” “h” is shaped just like a small chair

That is it’s sound too.

But, in a few words it sounds like /k/* in School

Ch when r comes after it

S before it

Are somewhat sure rules

To know when /k/* is the C,  h sound

Except-tions abound

Read Here

Anchor,  chorus, ache,

monarch and chlorine

Orchid, chemistry too


Chrome, architect, echo to name a few!

*/k/ = k sound. Any letter inside / / = a sound vice a letter name.



 This song is just for fun :)

Inchworm Rhythm

Inchworm, what did you lose


That makes you look from your head to your shoes


How do you ever get anywhere?


You fold back on yourself when you’re halfway there.
