Spelling ie and ei words

You skipped the test.


Teaching point - learning to spell Now that you have seen all these examples of ie and ei words, we need to look again at the rule :
" i before e, except after c "

It is clear that this rule does not apply to words with the long
vowel sound /ā/.

A better version of the rule is:

Spelling rule, i before e except after c

Even then, there are some rule-breakers which need special care.
