When learning difficult spelling words seems like a long, uphill climb, remember that we're here to help!
One set of particularly difficult words are those that are spelled with the ei or ie vowel combination. We've compiled a printable list of 285 for you study. Some words on the list are useful for elementary students, others are appropriate for high school students, ESL students and adults.
lesson plans will help you master these tricky spelling
words. See more ideas, and links to more word lists, at the
bottom of the page.
Teachers: Adapt the lesson for seat work, board work or homework.
All students, (including ESL) and adults: Print out the list to use it and review it frequently. Just looking at the words will help you remember how the words should appear. Then when you write them incorrectly, they just might look funny to you.
