Practice activity, front vowels. Let's practice these vows sounds that are pronounced with your tongue toward the front of your mouth. Iy, I, ey, e, ae. Here's a pronunciation hint, a big difference between these five vowels is how high or low your tongue is in your mouth and how much your jaw is open. Put your hand under your chin as you say the sounds in this order, iy, I, ey, e, ae. Can you feel your jaw going down a little more with each sound? Now do the same as you say words with each of these sounds. Meat, tip, lake, net, bat. Can you feel your chin lowering a little as you say each word? Now let's try reading a story that has lots of front vowels. You'll have a chance to repeat each part. Tina had just bought a new camera. It was a famous brand with many advanced features. And she was looking forward to taking some pictures. She unpacked the camera and tried to read the owner's manual. But it was much too technical. There were 67 pages of detailed instructions. And she couldn't figure them out. Tina began to feel angry. How can the manufacturer stay in business? She asked. Their instructions are impossible. Finally Tina had a better idea. She checked the Internet and found a video about how to use the camera. The instructions were clear. And in six or seven minutes she was ready to take pictures. Tina was very happy. Let's review. I'll say a word and you choose the word that has the same vowel sound, then practice saying the words. Be careful, the spelling of some of these words can be misleading. The first word is train. Train, does it have the same vowel sound as base, neat or bed? Yes, train and base have the same vowel sound. Now say the words, train, base. The next word is build, build. Does it have the same vowel sound as plug, eat or trip? Yes, build and trip have the same vowel sound. Now say the words, build. Trip. The next word is hand, hand. Does it have the same vowel sound as part, sad or came? Yes hand and said have the same vowel sound. Now say the words, hand, sad. The next word is peach, peach. Does it have the same vowel sound as man, beef or head? Yes, peach and beef have the same vowel sound. Now say the words, peach, beef. The next word is well, well. Does it have the same vowel sound as feet, task or head? Yes, well and head have the same vowel sound. Now say the words, well Head.
