Early Reader Song: See Rain

Study long vowel sounds with this song that combines Long A, Long E, Long O, Long U and Long I sounds. These spellings: ai, ee, o (at the end of a word), oo and igh are very common and have few exceptions. Notice that in this song, the vowels are separated first, then put inside words. This is a helpful way of demonstrating that sounds can be put together to make words. If you sing, this song is in the form of a serpentine (the pitches are not shown completely, just approximately). Remember, you can also chant these sounds.

Watch video.
