volcano detective
Teaching point The spelling rules for the /v/ sound are quite simple:

1. No English word ends in v . Always use ve:

live have above native intensive

2. Never put two v's together - vv looks too much like w :

lover giving ever every average

3. Never put uv. Always use ov instead:

cover above lovely shovel

The words below are all wrong. Use the rules above and type the correct word.
