|Rule: When two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking!
This means that when there are two vowels together in a word, the first vowel usually has a long sound and the second is silent. In 'boat' you hear the sound 'o' and not the sound 'a', therefore, the word is spelled as 'boat' and not as 'baot'.
Remembering this rule will help you to put vowels in the right order.
Directions: Fill in the blanks with correctly spelled words. Use the words in your sentences.
