Spelling the long vowel sound /ū/: u-e, ue, ew

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

How is the long u sound spelt in these words?

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

Work out which letters are missing.

Type the whole word:

Play me a t___ on your flute.
Why do you always arg___ with me?
Only a f___ friends are coming to the party.
That pretty little kitten is so c___.
The resc___ helicopter pulled him from the sea.
Another name for scent is perf___.
What is your exc___ for being late?
I wish I kn___ where I left my keys.
What is the val___ of this old watch?
My young neph___ is called Luke.
She is very mat___ for her age.
I hope you won't ref___ my request.

"Spellzone fits in beautifully with our Scope and Sequence of Phonological Awareness and Spelling. It also aligns perfectly with the four areas of spelling knowledge and uses the Brain, Ears, Eyes approach to learning spelling."
Thank you!
