Sound Focus: ei as in long /a/

LI: Sound Focus: ei and in long /a/

We learnt about ei as long /a/ for spelling. First looked at some words that include the sound “ei” for example: Beige, skein and rein. When saying these words the ei sound like a long /a/. Then my and my partner chose one of the words and turned it into a DLO, we chose the word “rein” which is a thing you put on horses.

I found this task challenging becuase it was confusing how the ei sounded like an a.
