This week we have been focusing on the following spelling patterns.
Alternative graphemes for the long a sound.
ai – chain, train, explain (found in the middle of words)
ay – play, stay, dismay (found at the end of words)
a_e – plate, plane, rate, fate
eigh – eight, sleigh
ey – grey, obey
a – acorn, angel, station
Initial consonant blends
str / ch / br / tr / th
We sometimes got th and f mixed up, as well as adding a d after st (sdraw for straw).
