When you start teaching e length, you really need to focus on repeated exposure, lots of practice, and homophones. Teach one spelling pattern at a time, and once one is mastered, you can add another. It is easier to learn to read than to learn to spell. Since they all sound the same and can appear in the same place, choosing the correct spelling pattern can be tricky.

Because they appear at the end of the base word. If they still ask, you can give them cues like ‘it’s the end of a syllable so what do you think can go there?’ Guide them to choose the correct spelling pattern.
Also, since there are multiple choices, expect students to make mistakes sometimes, and let them know this! It’s okay if they make a mistake as long as it’s another valid spelling choice and not something that doesn’t follow any rules. Through repeated exposure and practice, they will eventually internalize the correct spelling patterns for words.

Lots of practice and repeated exposure is the name of the game with the long e sound. Do various activities repeating the words as much as you can.
Grapheme Phoneme Mapping– This is a great activity that really isolates phonograms for students to practice. You can get the Phonics & Spelling Through Graph Mapping book and follow the long lesson, or use my long word list to do the same activity using the sound box. See below for examples.
Create short stories to help anchor spelling patterns. – Group similar words together and create short stories using them to help students remember them. This is similar to
, you could say ‘John drank tea on the beach while the eagle flew’ or something like that. Draw pictures or create your own poster with images of words with these spelling patterns and place them in your room.
Ea Decisions And Data
SOS– If you don’t already know what Simultaneous Oral Spelling is, please check out this post here. I love this multisensory spelling method for practicing spelling. And you can do this whole class or one on one making it really easy to use in any setting.
Dictation– This is another great activity but I would do it after you have spent a lot of time as it is more difficult for some students. Also when dictating words, give students clues about spelling such as telling them it’s a vowel team or an open syllable. I often dictate words that all have the same spelling pattern to avoid this problem.
Sort – Sort is always a good idea when you have multiple options for a spell. You can play matching games like memory, just sort them into piles/columns, or create any game that requires sorting by spelling patterns. This builds phonemic awareness so it’s always a good activity for all students.
The worksheet below is included in my Long E Word Work worksheets and activities, along with some other sorting activities.

You can also sort by color coding of vocal teams or spelling patterns in words. I took the list from the SOS activity, then had my students highlight each vocal team in a specific color to show the group more visually.
I include 3 different sorting activities for the long e sound in my Long E Worksheets & Activities set.
Picture cue cards– Create visual graphics of complex words, homophones and homographs. These picture clues are very helpful for students to remember the patterns to be used. I suggest you make them using index cards and keep them in a bag or box for reference. See the example below (it sounds long but you get the idea).
Games– Of course, I always include games because it’s so easy to add a stack of flashcards to any game and make it educational! Use an easy-to-play board game where students have to take a card in turn and add a task such as reading the word aloud and sorting it, or asking other players to spell it, or something as simple as having them write the word after reading it aloud. Or print teacher-made games from my Long E Activities set.

Constant Review– Remember to keep this spelling pattern under constant review after it is learned, so that it is not forgotten. Using asound wallor phonogram drills is a great way to do this without taking a lot of time.
