EE Spelling Words

The combination of the vowels “e” and “e” result in a long “e” 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 both “ee” spelling words and “ea” spelling words” – both vowel teams make the long e sound.

As noted above, there is more than one way to make the long e sound. We created long e worksheets to help a child learn how to spell these words correctly.
