Help students learn to identify the different sounds that the letter I can make, and the spellings that make up those sound with this digital learning resource hosted at BOOM Learning. Players will sort words into 2 categories. One category is for words that have the long-i sound spelled with and i, and the other category is for words that have the long-e sound spelled with an i; as in tried and thief.
