Level 5-9

ew, ue, and oo vowel pairs

new, food, glue, few, soon, room, knew, true, moon, root

The ew, ue, and oo patterns can all make the same sound -- the ending sound you hear in glue or new. Distinguishing between these three patterns isn't as simple as recognizing where they are positioned in the word -- it will take some serious visual memorization!

For students working through the Rocket Spelling levels in order, completing this level will mean they have learned 500 words so far. Impressive!
