Sound: i-e


i-e i-e ugly five

Slide incy wincy down the drain and flick him back to the top. Across his mouth and around the shell.


i and e used to sit together but they chatted soooo much, we had to split them apart and put another sound in the middle. We did this by drawing the graphemes i and e on a post-it notes and then ripping them in half to separate them to make a split digraph.


After that, we practised applying the split digraphs to our spelling.

For example:

dive / survive / five / bite


Ask you child if they can show you the action for i-e i-e ugly five!
