This resource includes handwriting practice via long vowel pattern spellings. Your students will practice penmanship while practicing reinforcing more challenging phonics skills. A variety of long vowel spelling patterns are provided for each long vowel sound.

Students will practice their handwriting while strengthening their skills in spelling and sound patterns, sentence formation/creation, and build their vocabulary. There is a focus sound, long vowel sound picture, and "Trace and Try" at the top of each page for support and/or reinforcement of each skill. Students will then identify 3 words that demonstrate the focus spelling pattern, highlight or circle those words, and write them.

I have provided a sample page within the Preview so that you may sample the pages. Please feel free to print it.

Students will be challenged to:

•recognize and learn words that have the sound patterns/spelling patterns

•read 1 sentence on each page (with support or independently)

•copy each sentence in their best handwriting

•locate, identify (highlight or color), and write 3 words on the page that feature the spelling pattern

  • Long vowel e spelled ea, ee, e_e, ei, y, ie, ey
