Spelling the long vowel sound /ē/: ee, ea , e-e, y

We have listed all the common spellings for e-e but there are too many for the others for us to include them.
So, if in doubt, check with a dictionary.

How is the long e sound spelt in these words?

Remember, if it uses the split digraph a-e there will be a letter in between!

Work out which letters are missing.

Type the whole word:

Do you like cr___m in your coffee?
Some of th___ words are hard to spell.
The coffee jar is empt___.

"Thank goodness for Spellzone during this remote learning phase. The site is easy for students to navigate independently and they're really enjoying the activities and spelling games. You get an awful lot for your money with Spellzone. Really reassuring is the very prompt response with helpdesk queries. I've very rarely needed the helpdesk, but when I have, the issue has been addressed and sorted within a very short time."
