Long and Short E Vowel Sound and Some Exciting News!!

If you read my post on Long and Short a vowel sounds, you'll remember I talked about a binder I used to keep all of my vocabulary and phonic rules in. Well here is an example of how you can keep or create your own.

Get a 3-ring binder. The size of the binder will just depend on how many words you have on your lists. Get some filing tabs and on each tab, write down what's in your folder for better organizing. Easy enough right?

Here are some more words to add to your lists for short and long e.

Short e: 
bed, led, fed, red, Ned, Ted, wed, pet, set, bet, met, jet, let, vet, yet, pen, men, ten, den, beg, leg, gem, pep

More: nest, vest, rest, help, tent, sent, dent, fell, tell, bell, well,  mess, yell, neck, deck, end, egg, elf, self, kept, belt, knelt, shed, fled,

-ea Words: bread, spread, dread, dead, breath, deaf, instead, head, sweat, wealth, threat, health, sweater, lead, deaf

Long e: 
final -y: happy, sappy, silly, really, bunny, funny, army, family, busy, fuzzy, city, country, easy, factory, heavy, baby, fairy, very, hurry, twenty, plenty, jolly, penny, money, lucky, memory, hairy, scary, lady, lazy, party, cloudy, honey, hungry, pony, puppy,candy, sandy, sleepy, kitty, many, handy, 

-ee: bee, tree, see, free, glee, deed, weed, kneel, sleep, green,
