SplashLearn - The complete Pre-K - Grade 5 Math & ELA Learning Program Built for Your Child
An understanding of long vowel patterns of UE and UI helps kids make their first step of learning decrypting skills. Your child will love to write words after knowing these sound associations. SplashLearn's interactive games on words with UE and UI are here to make lessons fun and interesting.
Teach the words with UI and UE, with Fun and Encouragement!
Pairs with the long vowel "U" are often more difficult to understand than other vowel sounds. The words with "UE" and "UI" vowel patterns have only one sound, making the second letter go silent. Kids can get stuck here as it confuses their understanding of other long vowel sounds. Make sure to revisit the other sounds as well along with the sound of the long vowel U.
Keeping the readers engaged with fun exercises will make their time enjoyable and meaningful. Interact with them with such words where they can differentiate the UE and UI sounds from the rest of the syllables easily.
If your kid is having trouble with "UE'' and "UI" sounds, try not to get too worked up about it. Each toddler is different. If they are going slow in any grade, it is best to push them to learn the topic they are facing difficulty with, for a while. You can also make use of SplashLearn’s games as it has some interesting games that can highlight the sound of UE and UI in words.
In addition, you can make them practice the long "U" vowel with an "oo" tone. Next, you can differentiate between the words with these sounds. For Instance, the word "cue" can be used for "UE" and the word "fruit" for the "UI" sound. Help them understand that when U and E or U and I come together, U is extended to make the "U" sound, whereas E and I go silent.
Online educational games can be one of the best ways of teaching. Since kids learn bots or a character to follow, SplashLearn starts with the basic concept of identifying the sound and later moving to pick the words.
