ee (as in tree)

ea (as in eat)

ey (as in key)

ie (as in piece)

e (as in be)

y as in baby.


The next two weeks, we will focus on words that have the Long E vowel sound that are homophones (each of two or more words having the same pronunciation but different meanings).



We are sending home some words and pictures.

  Please have your child sort the words and pictures to practice learning the meaning and spelling pattern of each word.
