Vowel sounds help

I have a group of kids (first grade) that are having some trouble differentiating between long and short vowel sounds. It's tough, though, because they have shown me that they know the sounds. If I ask them what sound they hear in a word (for example, the word cake... segment the sounds: /k/-/a/-/k/, tell the vowel sound: /a/, long or short? long), they can do it. But if I give them a group of pictures with long/short vowel sounds, they name the pictures but can't sort the sounds. This is causing them to have a tough time with the silent e spelling pattern. Any ideas on how I can help them remember which vowel sounds are long vs. short?
