Learn to Read with Phonics: Long I Sounds Story

Use this story to practice long I sounds. Remember, the American long I sounds like Ah-ee. It sounds like the name of the letter I. This is different from long E, which is just EE. Also notice the long I is usually spelled with "igh" with "gh" silent, with a silent E nearby as in "pike" or sometimes with y as a last letter (also the plural y, "ies"). Read more about the three Y sounds.
