Long Vowel Sounds: Vowel Teams
Remember that when a vowel has a long sound, it says its name.
One way to spell a long vowel sound is by using two vowels together to say one long sound. This is called a vowel team. Some common vowel teams are:
|Long A||ai_, _ay|
|Long E||ee, ea|
|Long I||_ie, _igh|
|Long O||_ow, oa_|
|Long U||_ew, _ue|
