    Long and Short Vowel Word Pairs.

    I know I have list around somewhere but during a recent adjustment in space at the school I can't seem to find them.

    I want to use them for practice. Does anybody have a link or suggestions.

    I have all the magic "e" stuff thank you. Looking for other pairs and combinations

    This is what I'm looking for:

    pant......paint......

    etc.

    I'm looking lists focusing on most frequent vocabulary lists.

    Anybody suggest.

    Thanks a lot.
    When being run out of town, get in front of the crowd and make it appear like a parade.

    Daniel Bedingfield claimed that his new album is what it would sound like if Sting, Stevie Wonder and Micheal Jackson were in a basement together - I haven't got the album so I'll have to imagine the sound of a blind bloke and a Geordie kicking the shit out of a pedophile.

    Thanks Cream.

    Those are just the spelling variations for the short and long vowels, not what I'm looking for.

    The other are the magic "e" components, I've got all I need there as well.

    In any case thanks for the response.

    I'm a going to have to go digging through my papers tomorrow.

    If I can't find I should be able to put an adequate list together in a few hours of concentrated work.

    Thanks again.

    pant...paint.....pint

    Yes pint.

    I need one
