By second grade, students should be able to determine which words contain a short vowel sound and those that contain a long vowel sound. At first, students will need to apply the phonics rules to these words. Once students recognize the words, they will not need to use the rules. They can simply identify these words by sight. In this quiz, the students will use rules regarding short and long vowel sounds, and they will identify whether a word is short or long.
