The long /u/ sound in spelling is pronounced yoo and can be found in words like cube or music.

One way of spelling the long /u/ sound is using the ew spelling pattern. This pattern can be found in words like new, few, and dew. The ew letter combination is usually placed at the end of a word or syllable.

When spelling words with the ew pattern, watch out for words with similar sounds which may have different patterns like ue or u-e. For example, though they both sound the same, the word dew has the ew pattern and the word due has the ue pattern.

Test yourself on these ew spelling pattern using the activities and games that come with this list.

"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."
