AY Words

AY-WordsThe combination of both an “a” and “y” can result in a long a sound. The vowel team rule states that when two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking. As a result, the first vowel says its name and the second vowel is silent. Our elementary school’s spelling program incorporates AY words.
