        Two Sounds of -y-

        This resource group teaches students about the multiple functions of the letter "y." The letter "y" can be a consonant, or it can make the "long i" vowel sound, the "long e" vowel sound, or the "short i" vowel sounds depending on how many syllables the word has, and where it is placed in the word.

        In this video, Francine (frustratedly) explains that, in addition to its usual sound, the letter "y" also makes three vowel sounds. At the end of a one syllable word, it makes the "long i" vowel sound while at the end of a two syllable word, it makes the "long e" vowel sound; and then it makes the "short i" vowel sound when it's in the middle of a word.
