Make a Double "ee" Eel to Practice Phonics!
In first grade phonics, that double “ee” is a big project. It's pretty strange, if you think about it: double a “t” or an “l” and the sound doesn't change … but double an “e” and, well, eek!
Here's a rainy day phonics craft project that you and your first grader can enjoy creating. Play with it, and keep it nearby the next time you read any book together that includes those double ee's, whether it's a story of a tree, or feelings, or the deep, deep sea … you name it!
