The vowels are: a-e-i-o-u- and sometimes y.
  When y functions as a vowel it:
     a) concludes a word which has no other vowel (my)
     b) concludes words of more than one syllable (happy)
     c) immediately follows another vowel (may, monkey).


Read the words listed below. Note spelling pattern (-y) at the end of each word. When (-y) appears at the end of a word that has at least two syllables, it usually has the long (e) sound.

Read the words listed below.

baby envy jolly puppy
belly filly Kelly rusty
bunny foggy lady silly
candy funny lilly skinny
Carly golly lucky study
creepy happy mommy tally
daddy hungry party ugly
easy jelly penny windy

  
Can you think of some additional two syllable words that end with the letter “-y” that have the long “e” sound.
